I don't see the problem. He only mentioned one problem that they will likely start to attack people when population grows more. I take it that means they are actually not disrupting the local ecosystem. And i heard somewhere there are too many people already. Sounds like a win-win to me :P
Or why not just eat them? They sure look tasty to me. That ban on hunting will be lifted soon enough after there are too many.
Or breed a few generations and select for more docile temperament and bigger udders. Then use them instead of cows ;)

Change the word hippo to human and you have a very interesting video. They clearly have ways to "deal" with the problem but I understand them not wanting to take that route because they're also a big part of the park itself.

I'd say kill em all
they're equivalent to the wild boars that feed on farmers crops here and what do we do?
Fly helicopter and shotgun em down before it gets bad.
