>Colombia plans to fly dozens of its "cocaine hippos" -- the descendents of drug trafficker Pablo Escobar's private menagerie -- to new homes in India and Mexico in a bid to control their booming population, according to the local governor.
>There are now between 130 and 160 of the hippos, according to the Colombian government, and they have spread out far beyond Escobar's former ranch of Hacienda Napoles, where they began as a population of just one male and three females.
>Previously, authorities have tried to control their population using castrations and "shots" of contraceptive darts. But the contraceptive drives have had limited success.
>Now there's a plan to transfer 70 of the hippos to natural sanctuaries in India and Mexico, the governor of Antioquia province, where Hacienda Napoles is located, said in a Tweet.
