Television nature shows are fond of hyena vs. lion confrontations because there’s lots of roaring, snarling, shrieking, whooping, and giggling. But they never show the last act of the hostilities. Lions positively detest hyenas, and big male lions kill them for sport. However, when an old male lion is dying, toothless and starving, probably hurt from one last fight he should never have gotten into, his last visitors will be the hyenas, which will tear him to pieces while he’s still alive, and then eat him. This part of the relationship does not get much air time.
