The Mysterious Animal Gangs Of Nigeria | Hyena Men | Real Wild


An intriguing film that unravels the myth of Nigeria’s Hyena People, who arrive in towns wrapped in rock pythons, with hyenas in chains and with trained monkeys turning somersaults.

Some believe that they are part animal and possess magical powers. The reality is that they are travelling minstrels earning money by performing with animals. This examines the clash between the urban and the wild, and the paradoxical relationship that the handlers have with their animals – sometimes loving, sometimes brutal and cruel.

    This is animal abuse at it's finest. I feel bad for the animals that should be in the wild not abused to perform.

    The governments around the world have
    completely FAILED to do what they are
    supposed to do. It's time to get rid of all
    governments as they are now conceived
    and replace them with a new model of
    justice and responsibility; instead of rank
    corruption and theft.

    Theres no magic or anything involved in this … It's very normal thing which some humans can believe that it's magic or some sort of superstitious nope .. it's very easy but very demanding … One need to spend enough time with the animal ..and some old skool tricks which our ancestors mastered but we are forgetting becos of 🤣
