Wow, I am surprised the dogs didnt’ take him apart.. Guess they were too focused on the meal at hand.
I love Hyena’s.. They are quite intelligent and ever so curious.
thank you for sharing

Man oh man what a tenacious soddy hyena! just didn’t want to give up & still grabbed a bit – eish!!! He’s very lucky the Dogs weren’t serious or he would have been a dead hyena!!! Thanks once again James & Jack

Alex,
Fred and I are wondering at a repeat view of the video why the dogs didn’t go for the throat when the hyena turned over. In fact, it didn’t look like any of them touched him except the one who had the nose-hold. Is it typical that they don’t try and kill a hyena.

And, what a classic ending – hyena prancing off carrying a scrap.
