Castrating Pablo Escobar’s hippos

Pablo Escobar, the drug kingpin, died in 1993 after having built a multi-billion dollar cocaine empire. He left behind a zoo.

His rhinos, giraffes and elephants were re-housed while his hippos were kept at Escobar’s abandoned ranch, Colombian countryside.

They began turning up at 100 kms in 2007.

The problem was solved by Vet Carlos Valderrama. He describes the experience of casting a hippo wild.
