The Wider Image: Nigeria's hyena men put maligned animals centre stage
Abdullahi Jahun, 24, pulls a hyena on top of himself during a circus in Gabasawa, Kano State, Nigeria, July 27, 2021. Jahun learnt how to tame and handle a hyena from his father and now makes a living from touring around northern Nigeria to entertain crowds with his own animal. "This was my job from when I started walking as a child," said Jahun. "I used to see my elders do it and became enthusiastic about it." REUTERS/Afolabi Sotunde SEARCH "HYENAS SOTUNDE" FOR THIS STORY.
