Hyena at the fence in Kruger National Park, South Africa

Hyena at the fence in Kruger National Park, South Africa

Each night, spotted hyenas patrol the fences around many of the campgrounds in Kruger National Park in South Africa. This is because every once in a while, some irresponsible person throws scraps over the fence for them. This causes hyenas to lose their natural fear of humans. Eventually they become aggressive and must be destroyed by park staff. Please do not feed the animals! You are giving them a death sentence! This particular hyena was filmed at Satara Çamp.
