Hire pro-hunters to kill them all.

Same for the f*cking California burro.

Declare them illegal to hunt and tasty; send Bubba.

How is this the first I'm hearing that Pablo Escobar had a bunch of hippos which have since become an invasive species?

Hippos are extremely aggressive, will chase humans on land, are much faster than humans and will kill said humans. They are one of the 5 most dangerous animals on Earth.

/ and they do not belong in Columbia.

Thank God they gave her sexy eyelashes, so we know it's a girl hippo.  I'd hate for this to get weird.

Just wait until they start expanding their territory and start cross breeding with manatees ...game over humans

Send them to Mississippi. They'll blend right in.

Are they hungry, hungry hippos?

A hippopotamus would as soon trample or drown you as look at you, if you FA with it where it lives.

Then Pablo Escobar decided to treat hippos to cocaine.

It's more accurate if you say "most dangerous mammals", and are comparing human deaths per however-many of the species.

"...hippos do not have a natural predator in Colombia..."


So import some - problem solved!

Why would you want to kill a burro? Just asking. I mean what is the issue?

I'm not reading another one of these stupid articles again. I tired of everyone racking on New Jersey all the time. Our beaches are lovely and enjoyed by a lot of different kinds of people.

I know it's a joke but, that would probably kill a bunch of them so, it's a valid population control strategy.
