Hyenas still loose in KwaZulu-Natal

Johannesburg - Two hyenas on the loose near Ulundi had not been found by Friday, Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife said.

"The traps were set last night [Thursday] but we didn't catch anything," said spokesperson Musa Mntambo. "We will continue to look for them."

He said there was a possibility that they could have moved to another area.

Over the past two days, the animals were believed to be roaming between the Ophapha Game Reserve and the Intibane lodge.

Rangers realised they were on the loose after a couple reported seeing a lion.

They went to view the tracks and found they were not those of a lion, but of a hyena.

The two hyenas were sighted at 02:00 on Wednesday when a trap was set for the 'lion'.

They had not been seen since.

    We saw them just outside the umfolozi gate on the 7th april around 8:30. They're accompanied by 3 african wild dogs. We still stopped to take photos of them.I can send if you want.

    Have they now made up their minds? First it was a lion, then it is hyenas, thought maybe they were correcting themselves again. Maybe the animals were really stray chickens or something.
