The biggest deterrent to a hyena trying to stalk a lion cub... is a very alert lioness. Not one that is looking to kill hyenas... but one who is very aware of her cubs and her surroundings, constantly assessing possible trouble spots and keeping the cubs away from obvious potential dangers as well as the not so obvious.
     If it comes down to her having to take action, then woe be to the hyena. But most times her living in CAUSE STATE is more than enough to send the hyena packing and off to a less vigilant guardian....Tim Larkin, founder of Target Focus Training, .
