An incredible example of the human-animal bond…
Hyenas roam the streets of the ancient walled city of Harar in eastern Ethiopia every night, seeking scraps of meat to drag to the nearby caves.
But residents are not afraid. A family chosen by the town to feed the animals is not daunted by the task despite the dangers that are associated with coming into close quarters with such wild animals.
Abbas Yusuf, known as Hyena Man, learned to feed the hyenas from his father, Yusuf Mume Salleh, who fed them for 45 years before passing the job to his son 13 years ago…
“I am privileged by God to be a good friend to those misunderstood animals.”
-Abbas Yusuf, aka “The Hyena Man”
