Thought I would post an interesting capture from my back field. Caught this guy feasting on a carcass. Bet you didn't know we had these in canada, EH?

Wild dog of some kind, maybe, but I don't think it is a hyena unless you were in Africa/India somewhere. Hard to tell with all the grass in the way. April 1st is fast approaching! ;)

Cool perspective really makes this almost believeable :)

nah, that's the distant cousin of the hyena- glovus snatchiotis. They are known to sneak up on unsuspecting prey and steal gloves out of pockets. ;)

Nicely done HBG...If you said you were on an African Safari recently I think I would have believed you! :)
