Just in case I'm correct, I won't reveal the answer yet.

14. I don't understand, if answer is other. Because question is a very easy, but why question has released, it means other answer. If 14 is correct. Heh Donald Duck always knows an idiot question.

I would say 4 (1 rabbit + 3 monkeys) but it can be 10 (1 rabbit + 3 monkeys + 6 tortoises) if you consider being carried up as going to, 28 (1 rabbit + 3 monkeys * 9 elephants) if you consider each elephant saw 3 monkeys that were not the same seen by each of the other 8, and 82 (again, if you consider being carried up as going to).
Then it is possible that one elephant has seen some monkeys that were also seen by other elephants and some (1 or 2) that were not. In this case the number of animals going to the river is impossible to determine without knowing exactly how many monkeys were seen going to the river.

Does this riddle has something to do with the shooting in the drive through? Cause I'm finding an analogy here...

I think ten aswell
I just want to say I made my answer and did my math before he laid clear the numbers. But I was typing.

Ok, since bloodsucker revealed the details, the answer is 10 indeed. But I do sympathize with the 82 resistance, it is possible to interpret “every elephant saw 3 monkeys” as each elephant saw a different group of 3 monkeys when the context is math. But that’s the trap anyway, so congrats to people who replied 10.

I have a question, is it meant to be going "to" the river or "into" the river?

“Going to the river” means going to where the river is, doesnt necessarily mean you’ll be swimming in it.

English is not my first language but I still think the tortoises aren't going to the river. That would involve a voluntary act of moving in that direction, they might be being dragged against their will.

Monere, since we already have the solution... Can you please answer the question that is really puzzling me: how the hell did you come to 19?

...9 elephants while going to the river
this... this thing screwed me up cause it's english and sometimes I'm having a hard time translating its intricacies into my language.

Had it not been for that word I would have gotten the right answer too cause I'm not dumb, nor is this a difficult riddle.

Oh well... next time maybe...

EDIT: just saw your reply Bloodsucker. Well, the answer is simple: 1 + 9 + 3 + 6 = 19. But I misinterpreted the reading cause of that "while" word that I've bolded in this post

@bloodsucker

Willingly or not, they are still going to the river. I mean, the whole point of them being in the hands of the monkeys is to include them.

When you say “I don’t know where our society is going but I sure dont like it,” does it mean you are not part of that journey because it is not your decision? If you take a vacation and take your dog with you, isnt the dog going with you?

@monere Of course, now I was the one being blinded by the solution.
@Artu Right. I guess I'm trapped in some other world's logic. I pointed the same argument to Fred yesterday. The first one, I mean, not the dog one.
