Brown hyaena ?

Although brown hyaenas are expected to occur here, I have never photographed one on the farm. Spotted hyaenas have been photographed and physically observed in the area.

I do think that the striped front legs, the long ears and the light colour of the neck of the animal in this observation could very well make this a Brown Hyaena. I will change my ID accordingly.
