        Hippo overpopulation is a problem, because gov't is the problem.

                                              i dont think hipo are a problem . biggest problem is humanity, they think all belongs to them.

                                                Yeah, it's a real problem: the government wants to keep making money from tourism. Otherwise you could just shoot them. But the people didn't want it. Can't have the government do anything against the will of the people. Never happens. But you got a "documentary " out of it. Win win!

                                                  Pablo Escobar earned illegal money, built a massive estate and sacrificed his life only for these 50 hippos to live their best lives...

                                                        just stop blaming the hippos; it isn't its fault.

                                                            Can you prove that the Hippopotamus has never lived in any other place than Africa in Earth's 5 billion years history. The Hippopotamus is a sacred animal of the Nubian people. The Hippopotamus were here before you even existed.

Or they can have a drawing. 5000 dollar price ? Or whatever shoot them problem solved. Why let this be a big problem? I wrote this before watching the whole video. But they making too big a deal out of this. The drawing money can be used to help the damage that they caused. Simple right??
