Kim and the Hyenas

Published : 6 Apr, 2021

Kim Wolhuter is a wildlife filmmaker who has been the first wildlife filmmaker to work with wild hyena and other predators in such an amazing way. He is a maverick of note and Karen had the pleasure of watching him with the hyena at the den. He wants to show people that hyena are not the maligned animal portrayed in Disney movies.

I hope this small video clip shows you just how amazing they can be.


Filmed by Karen Paolillo.

    What a wonderful sight, these different generations of hyenas with such a strong family bond, but also loving to have their heads scratched by a human being. I’m sure Kim is very aware that they are wild animals, and somewhat unpredictable the same way we are unpredictable to them, but he seems quite relaxed while establishing a rapport with them before starting to photograph them. A beautiful sight.

    Amazing! People need to understand animals are not good or bad, they just live their lives as their nature requires. Each fill an important niche in the ecosystem.
