    Default Urban Hyenas attacking rough sleepers.

    Not quite sure where this one might belong so apologies if it's in the wrong section but found this article interesting:

    Urban Hyenas becoming a problem in the streets of Addis Ababa.

    I can't say I would want to keep a couple of young hyena in the house, my spaniel has enough chewing issues!
    Best Regards,
    Adrian.

    Hello Adrian, thanks for sharing!

    I think AH member Anbessa Gedai may be able to remedy that situation.

    Here is an interesting article he shared with us that may be of interest to you.

    It sure was to me. AfricaHunting.com - No shortage of Hyenas in Ethiopia!

    LOL when I read the caption I thought they were attacking people who were snoring loudly!!!

    I guess this means no one has the right to complain about urban raccoons anymore.

    Eastern Canada has plenty of Racoons in the cities.
    Rabies carrying aggressive pests.

    Out west we get an occasional Moose, Black Bear, Cougar (Mtn Lion) rolling through towns along the rivers. We have resident Deer and Coyotes in many cities.

    A good example of how folks in the first world "deal" with problem critters. Study them.:
    Calgary Urban Coyote Study | University of Calgary

    Not exactly a third world Hyena Problem.

    They are a very intelligent nuisance with opposable thumbs that can get into anything that is not padlocked or welded shut. I believe Raccoon is Latin for spreader of garbage and pestilence.
