A certain Teen has survived hippopotamus attack. Residents said the boy was walking to school with his dog when he come across the wild animal. The 16-year-old schoolboy endured a hippo attack that left him severely wounded while on his way to school on Wednesday.
“The dog started barking, prompting the agitated hippo to charge towards the boy. The scuffle resulted in the boy sustaining a deep cut on the left hand,” a witness said.
Inhabitants said the boy was taken to Clinic. Zimbabwe National Parks Wildlife Organization teamed up and slew the hippopotamus and of late said societies should alert them whenever they encounter problematic animals. “When communities see wildlife in their areas, they must reach out to us and when that is done, we always reach the areas on time to avert the situation.”
Civic society organization also articulated worry over increasing occurrences of human-wildlife fight in Bulimia district. Few years ago, the region noted a deadly occasion after elephants trampled a man in Heeney.
The condition has also been deteriorated by substantial downpours which have permitted semi-aquatic species such as hippopotamus to discover new habitats. Long walking distances to access schools are a danger factor that has resulted in amplified vulnerability to attacks among minors.
