Well it seems a couple of "geniuses" decided to try to get up close with a hippo!
It all happened at the Kansas City Zoo. Two 14 year old boys jumped into the exhibit and before you knew it the hippos were getting angry and began charging!
They escaped before the hippos could maul them down. Hippos are one of the most dangerous animals in the world, obviously due to their size, intelligence, and territorial behavior.
The two teens will be charged to the fullest extent of the law.
So, you may be wondering why two 14 year old boys would jump in with hippos.
Yep, you guessed it, they were trying to impress a girl!

I think I got closer to the hippo than they did. Granted there was several inches of glass between us!
