外文标题：Hippo jumps from moving truck in Taiwan, startles locals
TAIPEI: A hippo that panicked while being transported by truck in Taiwan jumped from the vehicle, breaking a leg and causing confused residents to report spotting a dinosaur on the loose.
Television footage showed the enormous animal lying on the road with a white fluid oozing from its eyes after it jumped through a truck window and landed on a parked car before falling onto the road on Friday.
The sound of the collision startled people nearby who flocked to see the animal and contacted the police in central Miaoli county.
One woman was quoted by United Daily News as saying that she ran out of her house after hearing the crash and thought she saw "a dinosaur" lying on the road.
Taiwanese authorities said Saturday that the animal's owner could face a fine of up to Taiwan $75,000 (US $2,400) for violating animal protection laws after the hippo suffered a broken leg and damage to its teeth.
