Life in Africa…..

Most of the time I have to gently inform people that even though we live in Africa, we do not have wild animals roaming the streets. Johannesburg is a first world city.

I may however have to take this back….a Brown Hyena has just been found in a well-populated Johannesburg suburb just up the road from where I live!!

This is what a Brown Hyena looks like Рthey stand over a metre high and weigh about 40 kg.  I have seen them in the Kruger Park, and they are quite scary!

Hello Gorgeous! Brown Hyena

Happily, especially for the Hyena’s sake, she has been darted by the FreeMe Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and safely repatriated to Johannesburg Zoo.

As the local like to say here, Africa is not for sissies!! ūüôā
