Is This True? Do They Use Hyenas For Debt Collection In Nigeria?

I just saw a picture of people parading hyenas about on the internet. Is it true debt collection agencies use this to get back money from debtors in Nigeria? Seriously, my friend here who got the pictures sent to him says its true. Its really a big joke here now. Someone clarify this please.

That's what I think every time I see the picture. These guys are controlling hyenas but people are pretending that's not some powerful, fearless behavior.

Hyenas are far worse than lions or tigers. Lions and tigers are civilised. They go for the neck, juggler vein to be exact, and kill you that way. They kill their prey before eating them. Usually. As for hyenas, I've seen too many clips of bulls or gazelles stuck in mud or swamps, and hyena dey chop they nyash. Ruthless hunters.

hmmm! have you ever seen a lion eat its prey? Lion and tigers carefully tears off the flesh, sucks blood, and may come back later for the bone.

Mr brown; hyena might look sluggish BUT they TEAR bones together with the flesh, blending them into a smooth pate in no time - no time for separation.

My guy, don't ever dare an hyena.

The whole debt collection thing is a myth. The men are "Gadawan Kura" which is Hausa for "hyena handlers/guides." They make a living by being medicine men to the superstitious who take their ability to handle the hyenas as a sign of their potency. I want a hyena.
