Chuti

hyena-like animal, depicted in traditional art of Central Asia.

Physical description: Canine head. Tigerlike stripes. Has four forward claws and one rear claw.

Behavior: Kills cattle. Leaves humans alone. Distribution: Choyang and Iswa Valleys, Makalu-Barun National Park, Nepal. Possible explanations:

(1) The Striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) has well-defined stripes on its body and limbs and a massive head. It is common in open country and less abundant in the forested regions of Nepal.

(2) Confusion with the similarly named hominid- or bearlike DzuTeh.
