i do not "promote" humans owning wild animals by pinning this.  it is a very interesting article about the hyena men of africa at the link.  it is about their traditions and practices as a family.  they use large sticks to beat the hyenas (very bad) and they gave their littlest family members special herbs and concoctions so they will never be hurt by the animals.  the herbs allow the little ones to play freely with the animals and ride them.
