The Wider Image: Nigeria's hyena men put maligned animals centre stage
People are seen near baobab trees, opposite the house of Yaya Kawu, known as "hyena man", who keeps a hyena as a pet in Rano, Kano State, Nigeria, July 23, 2021. Kawu, who lives with a hyena and several snakes says his animals are considered part of normal life in his community. His mud-brick compound regularly attracts gaggles of children eager to look at the animals, and neighbours who have just slaughtered a goat sometimes offer him a gift of meat for his hyena.
