A captive born brown hyena that was sent to SanWild all the way from the United Kingdom was caught unawares by one of our rangers while cleaning out his den site in the late afternoon. Now who could say they are filthy creatures.
Scar arrived at SanWild on the 13th August 2013 and was returned to the wild after being held in a temporary release enclosure for some time. After his release he was monitored and supplement food was provided until he learnt to care for himself. Today he is totally self-sufficient and has turned into a wild brown hyena.
