Hippo Escapes, Goes for a Stroll

(Video Link)

The details are sketchy right now, but it appears that over the weekend, a hippopotamus in Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, Jalisco, Mexico escaped from its cage and wandered around town. Why anyone had a hippo--a dangerous, aggressive animal that can swallow a human whole--is not clear. According to the British tabloid Metro, police arrested a man who claimed to own the hippo but lacked the documentation necessary to prove it.
