Hyaena-Dog fight in Pishin, Balochistan, 1988

Hyaena's (Koga کږه in Pashto) are found in the Suleiman mountain range but no recent survey exists on their numbers. Pictured is a 1960 stamp from Afghanistan for the striped hyaena. Also pictured is a striped hyaena being introduced in the ring in Pishin, Balochistan (1988) before a public fight against a strong, specially trained dog. (Image by Jurgen Frembgen). In his book, Jurgen Frembgen accounts many interesting hunting methods of the animal by experienced hunters known locally as payloch (naked footers).
