The Hyaenas: Dingo and Dinga

  

Dingo and Dinga are siblings who came to us as orphaned cubs when their mother was shot by a hunter. The hunter thought he had killed a tiger and wanted to sell her babies for a large sum of money. When he realized his mistake, he got so angry that he wanted to kill them. Luckily we were able to rescue Dingo and Dinga and they now reside with us at the sanctuary. As cubs, we bottle-fed them until they were able to enjoy a regular diet of chicken.  Unfortunately our hyenas cannot be released into the wild because they did not get the chance to learn from their parents how to survive and find food.

Hyenas have the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom and can easily crush big bones. In the wild, hyenas clean nature by eating dead animals. Contrary to the popular view of hyenas as dangerous and ferocious, striped hyenas are shy animals and usually run away from people.

Stripey their cub is now 15 months old, ready to be released back in the wild.
