In June 2014 our research partner, Carnivore Research Malawi (CRM) were contacted by Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) about increasing fear and conflict between local communities and a specific hyaena clan occupying the city. The clan was at high risk and in a collaborative effort with many discussions it was decided that the clan should be captured and safely relocated to a national park away from local communities.
