Abbas Yusuf, who has been nicknamed The Hyena Man, lives with five hyenas and has been able to train them properly to be as obedient as dogs.

According to National Geographic, Abbas learnt the skills from his father, Yusuf Mume, who, in the start would throw scraps at the animals to lure them away from his livestock.

Abbas kept the tradition alive, and it has turned into a popular tourist attraction, with the city having lived with the animals for years now. Nations Geographic reports that there have been no reports of a hyena attack for over 200 years.

The young man has named all his hyenas and even makes them perform for tourists with a special dialect that helps him woo them.

He feeds them meat that he can find, and at times they feed on the town's landfill as they always wait to hear the garbage truck offloading.
