Feeding Wild Hyenas in Harar, Ethiopia- a story of bravery by Elsh

1st picture-

Hyena man: so you’re gonna take this stick and put it in your mouth and I’ll put a strip of camel meat on it and the Hyena is basically gonna eat it from your mouth.

Elsh: ….wait what? Are you sure about this?.. it won’t see me as the better meal here?

Hyena man: no don’t worry you’ll be fine, I’m one of them, they know me.

4th picture-

Hyena man: You did really great but I’m gonna need you not to show your teeth like that again, they might take it as a sign of aggression and then I can’t really help you.

Elsh:  I had to pull my lips back cause I really thought she was gonna eat my face, but okay 

5th picture: 

*Hyena man breaks the stick in half so it’s shorter, and crowd goes “Ooooo”*

Hyena man: remember just be normal and she won’t hurt you

6-10th picture:

Hyena man gives me the entire basket of camel meat: here Elsh let her eat straight from the source

Elsh: I can’t believe I’m actually doing this…

Long story short before doing this I really thought I wouldn’t make it out alive but eventually I learned how calm and gentle these Hyenas were they would actually line up to eat and take turns, I did not expect them to be this big though I’m 6’1 205lbs and the alpha female made me look small.

Gwenn Dubourthoumieu photographs showing the abandoned ruins of former Congolese president Mobutu Sese Seko.

In Mobutu, the former billionaire dictator, Joseph Mobutu remains Maréchal Mobutu Sesse Seko, the ‘everlasting’.

In 1967, two years after his coup d’état, he transformed the small villages where he was raised into a city with great infrastructure. A dam, a hydroelectric factory, an airport and three opulent palaces all rose from the African bush.

Fourteen years after the President’s departure, nothing remains of these developments.

Destroyed by weather, overwhelmed by vegetation and devastated by robberies, the palaces of the supreme leader are little more than mere skeletons of their former selves, wholly devoid of their former splendor for the eyes of visitors.
