Hyenas in Africa began to tame since time immemorial. They are easily domashniaya, it is teachable and, most importantly, loyal to the owner. And betrayed no worse than dogs, and maybe better. With them go hunting and as a formidable guard.

In principle, the hyena has adapted to long periods of hunger, but if food tucks, she can eat a lot.
“Striped hyena tamed quite easily. While in Khartoum, I bought a couple of young puppies for 50 cents. They have fun jumping at the sight of me, put his front paws on my shoulders, walked me through the streets, during our lunch sat on his hind legs like dogs, waiting for handouts. They very willingly nibbled sugar, but also eat bread, especially dipped in tea, but usually their food was dog, which we purposely shot in the area” (Alfredsen, transl. by Alexander Nikolsky).
