Hunt for Escobar’s Hippos, The
1 x 60'
Hacienda Nápoles, Colombia was once the haunt of billionaire psychopath Pablo Escobar, who happened to have a soft spot for Hippopotami! During the excesses of his reign of terror, he organised for four Hippos to be captured in Africa and delivered playboy ranch. Escobar unwittingly spawned a Colombian alien animal invasion; a real life Jurassic Park-story (all complete with concrete dinosaur statues!) – with potentially terrifying consequences. Having broken down the fences and escaped the drug baron’s exotic zoo, one of the most deadly animals on Earth is now running riot on the streets and infiltrating the wilderness of Colombia. To investigate the situation and hopefully find a solution, Colombian vet, Gina Paola Serna Trujillo, is calling in the services of South African big game capture expert, Chris Hobkirk. Together they are on a dangerous and risky mission to find and deal with Escobar’s terrifying legacy. But is the challenge too great, the hour too late?
