People of Limpopo outside Polokwane have been warned about one of the big five animals that were seen next to the road. The hippopotamus was seen moving around next to the R71 road between Polokwane and Zion City Moriah in Limpopo.

Limpopo has a lot of wildlife. But it is not normal that you can see a hippo walking around like that. Most of the big animals belonging tovthe big five live in Kruger National Park which is closed with a very big fence.

Because of heavy rain that has been falling this past few weeks it seems the hippo could have found a way out of the fence. The problem with being outside the fence, even though it could be fun, it will definitely not end well for the poor animal.

South Africa has a problem with poachers who kill this hippos for profit. The authorities must hurry and take the animal back to the park before it gets killed by poachers.

People of Polokwane who are travelling towards Moriah or Tzaneen are advised to be on the look out for the hippo. The lights might confuse the hippo and make it to behave violently.
