A hyena stands chained to its handler at a circus in Gabasawa, Kano State, Nigeria, July 27, 2021. Hyenas are often viewed as repulsive and sinister, partly due to their scavenging habits in the wild, but in northern Nigeria some men keep the creatures in their homes, display them at festivals and even use their dung to make remedies.

Yaya Kawu, known as "hyena man", drives his car back from the abattoir after buying some meat for his pet hyena 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.
