    1. Thank you very much Ferdy,

      The meeting was at the zoo in Amersfoort. The hyenas ran back and forth while it was almost closing time. Probable or that they had to eat or they may stay in their going. We had already seen earlier in the day and the dog. But right now they have probably got more eye contact, and then up quickly out of control. Especially since my dog ​​is quite dominate, and when she sees another dog for example, which is dominant, and then let them know who she is. I quickly made ​​a picture and her back away to avoid further eye contact. Unfortunately he does not focus well because I had to be quick. .

      I hate people that their dogs riled up in zoos, because this unfortunately. Therefore, Burgers Zoo unfortunately closed a few years ago. You just have to respectfully handle the animals in the park. If your dog does this, it just walk away and do not continue to escalate. These animals have already become frustrated and so on in frustration through these things. Look at the Bonita Gorilla, which is another example.

The spotted hyena , also known as the laughing hyena or tiger wolf, is a species of hyena native to Sub-Saharan Africa. The spotted hyena is the largest member of the Hyaenidae, and is further physically distinguished from other species by its vaguely bear-like build, its rounded ears, its less prominent mane, its spotted pelt, its more dual purposed dentition, its fewer nipples and the presence of a pseudo-penis in the female. It is the only mammalian species to lack an external vaginal opening.
