A Hippopotamus Is On The Loose In Shantou Due To Typhoon Usagi

Typhoon Usagi, with winds of up to 110 mph, began lashing southern China over the weekend, leaving at least 25 people dead in Guangdong province. At least one hippopotamus also finds itself stranded.

CRI has pictures of this friendly hippo lying in water outside a park in Shantou, Guangdong province. We’re told this two-ton fella has lived in the zoo since 2008; we can only hope that it finds its way back before too long.

Also, it should not pull an ostrich and run down the road.
