Castrating Pablo Escobar's hippos

Looks like they are trying to stop Pablo’s Hippo’s from breeding, but have only managed to do this to one, crazy the amount of effort it takes just for one animal.


I hate to say it, but isn’t this one of those times when a Big Game Hunter would be a good thing?


While it’s a darker-sounding option Columbia could certainly bring a quick end to their hippo problem AND bring in some serious revenue by selling tags for outsiders to cull this population…


Seeing the difficulty in castrating just one hippo I doubt relocation is on the table, and with over 100 of them they would really need to pick up the pace with castration. So in my opinion to save the natural ecosystem I also think they would need to have them put down sadly.
