Fresh Perspective

How many of you saw the live action “Lion King”?

Despite the highly mixed reviews, I have to say I appreciate how they made the hyenas more menacing. That angle definitely refreshed my bizarre soft spot for hyenas. Next story will definitely be written from the PoV of a hyena…yeah.

I’ve dabbled in flash fiction from an animal perspective before…basically, a dog is abandoned by her owner and she tries to stand on two legs to emulate a human, thinking that will make the owner return. I’m hoping the hyena story might be a tad less dark but, given the intense social hierarchy of these powerful carnivores, I can’t make any promises.

Any of you write from the PoV of an animal? How did it go, and what did you learn from the experience?
