Montenegro loses its only hippo
Davor Mujovic, the zoo's manager, told Reuters, "She remains at large, but one of the guards is keeping an eye on her and is feeding her daily." Nikica found a dry spot about a mile from the zoo, which is sufficient for now. Mujovic and the zoo guards are going to wait until the water pulls back more before trying to lure the hippo back to the zoo.
The hippo is already charming the locals, according to the zoo's owner, Nikola Pejovic. "People like her," Pejovic said, "villagers are bringing her fresh hay."
