 What do you know about the Nigerians man "hyenas men"



This notable photo of our article was taken on the website "Your Income Recognizes" by the photographer (Peter Hyogo), which he considers to be the best picture he has ever taken, and in the expression of it and the reasoning he has taken in it says: "I first heard about these hyenas in 2005 thanks to a widely circulated photo, described as being local debt collectors in the city of Lagos, which I knew I had to find. Some 186 million people live in Nigeria, so I had very little chance of finding hyenas, but in 2017 one of my friend journalists told me they were in Kano; their native town in the north, and two weeks after I heard this news, I travelled to the area ".

The "hyenas" live in a nomadic pattern and rarely spend more than two days in one place. The photographer (Hyogo) found them in a town near the capital (Abuja), despite the language barrier that stood between him and them, but said that they got to know each other well and quite easily, Hyogo says: "I didn't come across a white person in all of Nigeria outside of Lagos and Port Harcour, so I might have seemed as strange to them as it might seem to you a stranger to a hyena on the streets of the city."


Most likely, Hyogo smoked cannabis with hyenas, which contributed greatly to the ice breaking between him and them, and later it became clear that they were not collectors of debt, but rather as close as they were to "connoisseurs" and traditional storytellers who performed various shows on the streets and sold "magic drugs and drugs" after completing their performances.

Hyogo says it reminded him of the stories he read about circus shows that were taking place in eastern Europe in the 1930s, except that the first included bears, which in Nigeria included hyenas, baboons and snakes.

Seeing them perform was memorable; Their performances were enormous, they were beating drums to attract the attention of the mob, then they took the masks off their hyenas, then they put their arms and even their heads between their hyenas, and the aim of this show was to convince people that they had superpowers, especially, and that they could also have those powers if they bought the "magic drugs" they offered.


Hyogo says, "At first I was trying to film the show, and then I noticed that the performance was great, Then I realized that the relationship that came together there between man and the beast was more striking than all those fireworks and the showery that filled the atmosphere. There's been a very strange thing going on between these guys and hyenas, These animals were recovered from the wild when they were a small procedure and could not return. And since then she's been fully dependent on these men for her food, They depend on it for their livelihood, each party to the relationship was in need of the other, but it was not an easy symbiotic relationship. "

Men didn't seem to have any problems with hyenas. If you feed and water them, you always find them grateful and happy, but the problems have always come from baboons. She's very close to us humans. She seems to have more complicated emotional needs than hyenas. The men were carrying scars and scratch marks in isolated places of their bodies because of these baboons. s rights ", they have always been in conflict with them, suggesting that she was not a happy party to this symbiotic relationship.

The photo was taken in Harmattan, a time between November and March when sand-carrying winds blow from the Sahara desert and scatter West Africa, creating this dark light that I loved so much. I wish I could take a lot of pictures like this. "
