Birmingham man, Mr Jimsong Yoyo was recovering at home after being chased by a pack of hyenas.
A visibly shaken Mr Yoyo recounted how he had been forced to flee from the wild African predators following a night out in the city centre.
'I'd been in the pub in town and I'd had me a few shandies with the lads. Anyway, I was feeling a bit buggerated so I decided to go home.'
Mr Yoyo was walking by Digbeth bus station when he saw what he thought were a pack of dogs. It was only when they started to laugh at him that he became worried.
'They started laughing at me. I thought, as you do, oh my God, them ain't dogs, them's hyenas! Anyway, them started sort of closing in on me, so I thought I'd best leg it for me own safety like.
'So I did.
'Them was all stalking me down and that and I was thinking I'm in some really deep doo-doo here.'
Luckily Jimsong managed to flag down a passing taxi. When he told the taxi driver that he was being stalked by a bunch of laughing hyenas he just shrugged. 'Yeah, happened to me a couple-a times last week mate, bloody menace they are.' He said.
'In fairness, I was a bit twatted,' he reflected, 'and the young lady I'd been promising the earth to also made it home safely, and the wife was reasonably understanding about the lippy on me boxers, but I knows a frigging hyena when I sees one.'
