    JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (Reuters) -- A former Miss South Africa has been attacked by a wild hippopotamus and bitten on the leg, local media reported on Wednesday.

    Media reports said Diana Tilden-Davis, Miss South Africa 1991 and a runner up in the 1991 Miss World contest, was attacked while canoeing in the Okavango Swamps of neighboring Botswana and was airlifted to Johannesburg's Milpark hospital.

    "We are treating her and she's in a stable condition," an official at the hospital told Reuters, but declined to give further details.

    Earlier this month, another South African woman was killed by a hippo while she and her husband were on their honeymoon in Botswana.
