Video: Bryan Hawn Introduces New Times To His Hyena

You gotta admit, buying a hyena and keeping it as your pet in a South Beach apartment is pretty ballsy. It's even gutsier to turn yourself in to the Florida Wildlife & Game Commission so that your pet hyena can be placed in a proper home.

That's what Bryan Hawn did. Now he can visit his best pal Jake whenever he wants.

We got to see Hawn and his furry fanged friend play inside a

chain-linked yard at the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in the Redland.

"Knowing that I would still be a part of his life made it easier to

leave him," Hawn says. "The bond I have with this wild animal is

absolutely priceless. The love Jake and I share is unbreakable."
