Pack of Hyenas Drag Sleeping Elderly Man from Bed and Maul Him to Death

A pack of wild hyenas pulled a sleeping elderly man right from his bed and mauled him to death in Africa.

The victim, 87-year-old Tendai Maseka, was attacked as he slept in a hut in the rural region of Chirumanzu in central Zimbabwe, CNN reported.

The animals dragged Maseka about 1,000 feet as they attacked him, according to the report. The lower half of his body was missing when it was discovered, authorities said.

“Drag marks and hyena tracks were visible,” Tinashe Farawo, spokesman for the Zimbabwe Parks & Wildlife Management Authority, said on Twitter.

The same pack of hyenas is believed to be responsible for a series of attacks on goats and cattle in the region, according to CNN.

Trackers from the Parks and Wildlife Authority are hunting for the animals. Farawo told CNN that animal attacks like this are common this time of year, when the climate is dry and animals move into communities in search of food and water.

“This is the 60th human life lost this year alone to human wildlife conflict,” he told the news outlet.
