Default LAPD Looking Into Video Of Nignog Who Spanked Hippo At LA Zoo


LAPD Looking Into Video Of Man Who Spanked Hippo At LA Zoo
August 13, 2018 at 11:59 pm

STUDIO CITY (CBSLA) ó He might have done it for Instragram or YouTube fame, but now a man who crossed a barricade guarding a hippopotamus enclosure at the Los Angeles Zoo is looking at potential trespassing charges after he was filmed spanking one of the animals.

Video shows the man climbing the fence outside the hippo enclosure at the LA Zoo and sneaking up on two hippos, named Rosie and Mara. The manís approach is very cautious, and then when finally close enough, he slaps one of the hippos on the rear before rushing back over the fence and taking a moment to celebrate his feat.

The LAPD confirms they received a report of trespassing at the zoo and are investigating.

In the video, Rosie, the hippo that was slapped, does not show much of a reaction, but her mother appears startled and looks up as the guy is still in the enclosure. Itís not clear if the man knows heís being recorded, but clearly heís showing off. The video started making the rounds on social media last week.

Could you ever be this bold to slap a #hippo butt? #STLA#whodidthat #ikyfl #couldyou #daredevil #zoomchallenge pic.twitter.com/AC934unLax

While hippos at the zoo do have human interaction, this kind of treatment can create an unpredictable situation.
