6 months ago Juno was found running through the streets of Johannesburg, when she was finally darted by Johannesburg zoo she was in a state of stress and the pads on her paws had been damaged from running on tar mac. A few weeks later she was brought to Mankwe for rehabilitation to prepare her for a 'soft release' on to the reserve. Juno immediately relaxed in her new enclosure and gained condition. She was fed bones, carcasses, eggs and birds, which is a diet typical to a brown hyena. Human contact was kept to a minimum so that she would not lose her fear of humans. A GPS collar was fitted a few weeks ago but Juno proved to be an unsuitable candidate for a collar as she became extremely stressed and tried to pull the collar off. The following day the collar was removed and a week later she was released on to the reserve. She walked calmly and confidently into the night. Her movements are being monitored by camera traps. Juno stole the hearts of all those that saw her and has created a positive awareness about the plight of brown hyena's.
