The man claiming to own the hippopotamus was subsequently arrested after he lacked the documentation to prove his ownership.

In other news, it's illegal to claim something the police can't prove.

That should probably be more like; The man claiming to own the hippopotamus was subsequently arrested for lacking the proper permits to own such an animal.

I hope thats why anyway,  lazy reporting versus lazy police, hmm.

FTFA: "This hippo was seen aimlessly mooching around town..."

Damn moochers,  always borrowing money but never paying it back,  or driving my car and not refilling the gas tank,  or eating all my food.  They're the worst.

Hippos aren't exactly the friendliest herbivores on the planet.

It's Mexico so it might even be:

The man claiming to own the hippopotamus was subsequently arrested for lacking money to buy permits directly from police officers on the scene.

One of the meanest and cantankeresty herbivores on the planet. More people are killed in Africa by hippos than any other animal.

At a BBQ along the river one evening a great big commotion came hurtling towards the group. A female hippo was charging for the safety of the water. All the macho men dived for safety in the vehicles. The women... well, let's give credit where big balled credit is due. They grabbed the kids first and hustled them to safety. So much for male chest beating.

Hippoetry.

 -----

Some think the
Noble hippopotamus
A somewhat
Pointless rhinoceros


 -----

My hippo has the hiccups
and his hiccups shake the ground.
The floor is always rumbling
when my hippo is around.

I bought him at the pet store
But I missed a small detail.
I didn't see the sign said:
"Hiccupotamus for sale."

 -----

I shoot the Hippopotamus
With bullets made of platinum,
Because if I use leaden ones
His hide is sure to flatten 'em.

 -----

Behold the hippopotamus!
We laugh at how he looks to us,
And yet in moments dark and grim
I wonder how we look to him.

Peace, peace, thou hippopotamus!
We really look all right to us,
As you no doubt delight the eye
Of other hippopotami.

 -----


A rhinoceros
fits neatly in a haiku,
but a hippopot

Hippos are extremely dangerous. People die from hippo attacks every year.  The good thing is, hippos are also the crocodiles mortal enemy.
 Crocs are scared sh**less of hippos, and if you see hippos, don't worry about crocs. They have left the area.
 On the other hand, if hippos are "clearing the river" of crocs, don't go in the water.
