A hyena created a storm on social media as it roamed the streets of Johannesburg on Thursday 26 September.

The animal made its way through Victory Park, Delta Park and Blairgowrie before residents and officials managed to corner it in on Olympic Road.

The animal was darted with a tranquilizer gun by zoo officials.

She will remain at the Johannesburg Zoo's hospital for at least four weeks before experts can consider releasing her.
