Man Versus Apes?

We all have heard about mankind destroying nature, but this time, it’s not only just that—they are putting apes in great danger as well. The story is about the conflict between the two: Humans and apes. Commonly, we think that animals do not haveL< the capacity to think as we do, but in this case, that is not at all true. In fact, they came to logical realizations about the problems around them, including the cause. The apes, especially the main character, realized how unfair the treatment is for them. That harsh treatment was triggered when the United States military was called to fight them off. A war was waged and it is not them who started it, yet they have to be the ones to end it all. Will they prevail? What will be their course of action?
