Disheartening! Watch Safari Goer Throws Plastic Bag In Hippo’s Mouth, Viral Video Sparks Outrage On Internet

Disheartening Video: Humans are the most selfish beings on the planet. We are directly or indirectly damaging the most precious planet in the universe. Not only that we are hurting and killing innocent animals for our needs. Most of the animals like cattle dependent on humans for food and they look at us with a hope of little amount of food. Similarly, wild animals at the zoo, which we kept there for our amusement, dependent on us for food. Imagine a person who hurt these innocent helpless animals who are already captive. A video of a person throwing a plastic bag into a hippo’s mouth has recently gone viral on the internet, causing widespread outrage.

Netizens came forward in support for the wild animal and requested authorities to arrest the individual responsible. Notably, the disheartening incident took place at a safari park in Bogor, West Java. Reportedly, authorities are looking for the person responsible. Allegedly, the sa me individual also poked a deer with a carrot during the safari.

The post was shared on X by a user who goes by the name @PicturesFoIder. “A safari park visitor threw a plastic bag into the mouth of a Hippopotamus at the Taman Safari in Indonesia,” reads the caption.

In a video that grabbed the attention of many, we see a hippo loitering by the edge of its fence, its mouth wide open in anticipation. Onlooker from a car parked next to the fenced area tried to feed the expectant animal a carrot. Out of the blue, another passenger in the same car unthinkingly tossed a plastic bag into the hippo’s open mouth. Unsurprisingly, the animal started chewing on it.

According to the park’s spokesman, Alexander Zulkarnain, they have identified the accused person.

“We have identified the license plate of the vehicle carrying that person. We urge him to make a public apology to teach a lesson to other visitors about complying with the standard operating procedures at the Indonesian Safari Park,” Zulkarnain told Jakarta Globe.
Later, Jakarta Globe also shared an update on the hippo’s health. The animal was immediately checked and is healthy.
Zulkarnain later added, “We have collected information from our guards and security cameras at the park. Guards told us that this particular visitor had been reprimanded several times for opening the window in the tiger area.”

Since being shared the clip has accumulated over 1.9 million views and tons of comments.

Here are some comments:

• “I hope that person and the hippo meet again someday. Hopefully, it will be in an environment more favourable to the hippo,” posted an X user. “That’s pi**ed me off more than any video I’ve seen today I know that much,’ added another.

• A third shared, “I hope they were caught and arrested! That could kill the hippo!” A fourth joined, “These people should be banned from every safari park and not allowed near any animals.”

• A fifth individual wrote, “Wow we go from suffocating turtles to choking hippos.”
