“Zoo Details Hippos Ill-fated Trip”
By: Manny Gonzales
Animal rights groups were questioning the Hippos death. It seems to me that the hippo was well cared for and died probably just because it was her time to go. I do not see much of a difference of flying the hippo there as compared to driving the hippo there. I think that flying the hippo there would have been more dangerous because she would have died doing that to plus on take and landing it could cause her great stress that is not needed on a hippo that is being transported. What is the big deal with her laying down I mean would you like to stand for 29 hours going to Calgary. That would be a lot of wasted energy in my opinion. I feel that it was good for an animal rights group to check into this because this should not be happening. Things just happen sometimes that we can not explain and it bugs us way to much Just get over it and let life go on.
