Hyenas find new home at Oakland Zoo
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Three spotted hyenas moved into their new home at the Oakland Zoo this week.
The two males and one female are settling into the new digs after a move from the Berkeley Hyena Center where they were part of a UC research colony.
Funding for the research dried up recently, and the three animals needed a new home. The Oakland Zoo told the university they would adopt them.
The zoo will keep the younger trio separate from an elderly pair already at the zoo. They're worried about potential fighting because of the age difference.
