The “sea creature” I mentioned the other day has been slain. I’ve heard varying accounts of how it happened ranging from “they shot it” to the more exciting “it took thousands of men with cutlasses.”
What I know for sure is that after it was killed, its head was sent to the Nayiri as a gift. Hippo meat is supposedly very good (just ask Tommy Harrison who went to the Nayiri to get some) and when I visited the chief’s palace all that was left was its massive jaw bone.
On a not-so-entertaining note, the man attacked by the hippo is still in the hospital and in critical condition. Keep him in your prayers as he is in a great deal of pain and has 8 broken ribs.
