Country reported: Senegal

The booaa is a cryptid hyena reported from Senegal in West Africa. It is described as a large hyena, and is named after its cry. Karl Shuker and George Eberhart suggest it may be a far western extension of the Nandi bear, which is reported from the opposite side of the continent.[1][2]
