Hyenas Outside My Window
Next to the house where I grew up was a lot where people would through their trash. At night, just about the time when I would get settled into bed, I could hear some strange noises outside my window. Daisy my donkey, would start to get restless so I knew that another animal must be nearby. Was it a stray dog, or a jackal? Was it a leopard? Was it a mongoose? What was it? It was definitely a hungry hyena! They would come to sift through the trash and pick out any bits of garbage they may find. Although they have a wierd shaped body, and not the most beautiful face, they sure do a good job at trash cleanup! I suppose that is why they have the strongest jaw of any African animal.
