Dead drug lord’s hippos on the loose in Colombia

`Today, Hacienda Napoles is in ruins, taken over by jungle foliage and bats. The sprawling Spanish-style mansion has been gutted, scavenged by treasure hunters looking for stashes of gold and cash buried under the floors. [Pablo] Escobar is long gone, cut down in a hail of police gunfire.

But the hippos are still here.

[..] Now the original four have multiplied to 16 and, far from starving to death, as some expected, they have learned to forage like cows.’
