You have to wonder what people think about in their day-to-day to consider spanking a hippo. Like, I really want to be inside this guy’s head for a little while, just to see what happens in there.

The guy I’m talking about is this doofus, who decided it was a good idea to hop into the hippopotamus enclosure at the zoo. Not only hop inside the enclosure, but run up to and proceed to spank one of the hippos. Now, I probably don’t have to tell you, but hippos are big creatures. They’re also very protective, and they can run pretty quickly. Lucky for this guy, neither of the two hippos took off after him, and he was able to get back out without injury. Here’s the video:

Nevermind his little “victory” dance at the end, he’s lucky he didn’t fall in, get pulled in, or caught in the act by security. But unlucky for him, the Los Angeles Police would like to have a word with him. They’re planning on filing trespassing charges against the guy. And I’ve got a strong feeling that they’ll be able to track this guy down too, it’s a pretty clear video. In any case, STAY OUT OF ANIMAL ENCLOSURES. The zoo has since posted a “No Trespassing” sign, but should they even have to? No, we as people should understand that a barricade and railing is there for a reason, right? Anyway, see the original story here for some more information.
