Fearing the stone’s wound, the hippopotamus returned to the lake. According to Ugandan police, this is the first such incident in which a hippo has swallowed a child. However, thanks to the courage of Crispas Bagonja, the child’s life was saved. According to the police, the child had been injured by the teeth of a hippopotamus. He was taken to a nearby clinic for treatment and then transferred to Bawera Hospital in western Uganda. The child is now discharged from hospital after fully recovering. Ega Paul was also vaccinated against rabies before being returned to his parents.

In its report, CNN quoted Ugandan police as saying, “All residents living near the lake should be aware that wild animals are very dangerous. They must be careful. Wild animals see humans as a threat. Any action by humans can cause them to behave strangely or aggressively. According to National Geographic, the hippopotamus is known as one of the most dangerous animals on Earth. A hippo’s jaw is so strong that it can snap a canoe (small boat) in half by squeezing it in its mouth.
