This is a small country in Europe. A 2-ton hippopotamus is wading through a village in Berislavci, Montenegro. It is Nikica. She is 12 years old, and she ran away from a private zoo, whose owner released Nikica from the cage because of the flood. The hippo’s escape was accidental. And after swimming along the village’s streets for 9 days, she returned home.
