Hyenas get a bad rap. Maybe that's a curse for all scavengers. Still, we should give them more respect, they are a important part of the food chain.
When I was camping in Kruger Park in South Africa I came the closest to a wild animal (a hyena) possible without having your throat taken out. He (or She, again who knows?) was on one side of the protective wire and I was on the other side. Unlike a zoo however, I was on the inside! It was an amazing experience.
