Blake in Colombia: Hippos were sterilized by Pablo Escobar

Authorities in Colombia have sterilized 25 hippos on the former farm of the late drug lord Pablo Escobar. Corner, an environmental protection organization, said Friday (local time) that the animals were growing uncontrollably. Escobar kept two hippos and other exotic animals on the farm, such as giraffes, zebras and kangaroos.

After his death, all animals were sold – except hippos. These were bred into a herd of 80 animals.
