I couldn't believe this one. Apparently a gang of armed thugs got together and beat a hippo to death at a zoo. Who would even think up such a thing, not to speak of actually doing it? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/gustavito-el-salvador-beating_us_58b501d9e4b0780bac2cbc4b? " He had multiple wounds or bruising over much of his body, including his feet, neck, face, and even inside of his mouth, which likely occurred as he tried to defend himself, said zoo director Vladen Henríquez. Officials believe he was attacked with rocks, metal bars, knives and an ice pick."
