Aisha the hippo died on Saturday night after being hit by a car on a road in Villa Potenza, in the Marche region, Cronache Maceratesi reported.
The eight-year-old hippo was making a bid for freedom from the Orfei circus when the fatal crash occurred. Despite weighing 1.5 tonnes Aisha was no match for the Polo driven by a 25-year-old local man, who suffered only light injuries.
