  1. I saw a video of scientist testing bite force from lions wolf's pitbull and k9 later they did a test on a hyena and the bite force was 900 pounds and that wasn't even a full grown hyena so now imagine how hard a full grown hyena bites

  2. That guy housing those hyenas is going to attract a lot of big cats around with what he does! Also I wouldn't keep them around, I don't know what kind of illness they drag around.
