VIDEO: Is that a hippo swimming in the Chicago River? You decide


Could a hippopotamus really make its home in the Chicago River? At least one person seems to think so.
In a video uploaded to YouTube by Chris O., you can see something near a boat in the river that possibly resembles a hippo but it’s hard to tell.
According to The Blaze, the Chicago Police Department has not received any “reports of wild animals roaming the streets or the rivers of Chicago.”
A representative with the Brookfield Zoo also told The Blaze that it was unlikely that a hippo would be able to survive in the river, especially given Chicago’s harsh winters.
