People don't realize how dangerous hippos really are.
The "hunting" (aka brutal slaughter) has been going on for 50+ years now, when will it end? If you believe it's to control the numbers, you've got another thing coming, friend. And there are no regulations for animatronic hippo hunting in those rivers, either. Anyone with a cap gun can go out and shoot any damn hippo they want.
And by the way, there are twenty times more animatronic birds than hippos roaming about. I don't see anyone doing anything about them
