Hyenas Change Diet During Lent

Offbeat  (tags: animals, wildlife, behaviour, environment, protection )

Research suggests that hyenas eat less meat scavenged from human garbage during lent, and have to supplement their diet with other sources. Hyenas are opportunistic and can digest almost anything, including bones.

I've always considered hyŠnas as related to weasels, along with wolverines, mongoose, meerkats, otters, stoats, and the like. They've fit to their ecological niche well and aren't at all like Disney villains; if I was going to drive them off like Hemingway I'd have peppered them with paintball rounds vice killed them. Animals that can kill rats that efficiently deserve respect; I despise rats for their diseases and for their tendency to damage everything they touch.

If not for his awkward gaite and grating sounds,
the Hyena would be respected for the fierce predator he actually is.
Thank you Cher
