    You are correct. That video was quite interesting. In retrospect, maybe the indoctrination of hippos to the U.S. would have been a good idea. The "antis" might be more fully advised of the need to keep animal numbers under control.

    All one needs to do is look at the epic fails of the government “solving” problems by introducing non native species! Although it would be great to have hippo to shoot in The bayous!!!
    At least when someone asks why do you have so many heavy rifles you could roll your eyes and point at the hippo in the pond.

    very sad it didnt happen my property is on the alabama river and this would have been great.

    This would have also been a great reason for me to have a double rifle.
