The Wider Image: Nigeria's hyena men put maligned animals centre stage
A hyena belonging to Yaya Kawu, known as "hyena man", is seen chained in Rano, Kano State, Nigeria, July 23, 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.
