AP Beufort N.C. Sharon Anderson had no idea what was headed her way on a county road when her car struck and killed a pygmy hippopotamus. The 500 lb animal had wandered away from a plantation owned by Joel Silver, producer of The Matrix franchise. The hippo is one of several wild animals kept at Auldbrass Plantation designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Talk about ruin your day. I bet even Rockpiles good wife Tina would have a time dealing with this road kill treasure.
