Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 10, 2019

Escobar started with four hippos during his reign of terror. Now they number in the dozens and Columbia doesn't know how to stop them. The giants, native only to Africa, are now running wild in Colombia, reports CBS News' Manuel Bojorquez. There's concern the hippos have already started to displace native wildlife, like the manatee, and keep getting too close for comfort.

"We can't just kill the hippos

Why not?

If they were really such a danger, the problem could be dealt with rather quickly.

They need water and are too big to hide. They also happen to be the most dangerous mammal to humans in Africa. Columbia should shoot them all while they still can.

Only a matter of time before they spread and move north like the african killer bees.

I'm pretty sure they can end this by having a trophy hunt.

Why kill them? Send them back to Africa.

Don't take that quote out of context on me, righties.

Nevermind, I just assumed they were endangered in Africa. They're not... yet. They should definitely kill them or sterilize them somehow; If they're a bad enough pest they can destroy the ecology for a long, long time.

Kill them all.

Give them cocaine.

In America they'd already be dead. You don't need special permits for invasive species.

Shoot the hippos. They are non-native invasive species, and have no business in Colombia. Also, you can send the meat to that Socialist paradise Venezuela, where they are in desperate need of other people's help. Like usual.

I don't think you can bring them back home because they may have special south American parasites and diseases

"I don't think you can bring them back home because they may have special south American parasites and diseases"

All morality arguments or political pot-shots aside, this is the most important consideration.

Disguise explosives as white marbles.

With those nostrils? You'd need a rolled 8'x10' area rug, a wall mirror on the floor, a samurai sword, and about 200 kilos.
