The May VeIdTalk was excellent.  I was so surprised to see the VeldForum comment from Colin MacRae of De Tweedespruit Conservancy!  My husband bought me Colin's book, "Life Etched In Stone", a few years ago for Christmas and it is the most beautiful, interesting book.

My husband, Lee, saw a brown hyena at our gate early on the morning of 26 May.  The dogs were going mad so he went to investigate and shone his torch straight into its face!  I’d have thought  hyenas would keep away from an area with houses.

Editor's note:  Lee von Zeuner is involved with the Wilderness Leadership School so he's unlikely to confuse an hyena with a wandering goat!
