Moving Hippos in the Post-9/11 World
It's a security risk:
The crate was hoisted onto the flatbed with a 120-ton construction crane. For security reasons, there were no signs on the truck indicating that the cargo was a hippopotamus, the zoo said.
The last thing you need is a hijacked hippo.
Does this make any sense? Has there ever been a zoo animal hijacking anywhere?
EDITED TO ADD (10/13): Kidnapped zoo animals.
