DENVER (January 14, 2016) – In this week’s episode of Outdoor Channel original series Carter’s W.A.R. (Wildlife Animal Response) presented by Nosler, wildlife investigator, Ivan Carter, brings viewers on his quest to reveal the reality of aggressive tendencies associated with the hippopotamus on Monday, January 18 at 9 p.m. ET.
In Changa, Mozambique, a fishing village on the Zambezi River in Africa, villagers report a hostile hippo and call Carter in for help. The inevitable is at play in a tribal-based area where humans and wildlife live side by side, resulting in conflict.
“So far, all of the victims have been fisherman,” Carter acknowledged. “They are definitely missing; their houses stand empty. But what happened to them? Were they indeed killed by hippos?”

These mammals have the reputation of killing more humans than any other animal. An estimated 3,000 Africans a year are killed from alleged hippopotamus attacks. Are hippos actually dangerous or are these deaths a result of mere circumstances? Find out Monday on the Outdoor Channel.
