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.

"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."
