A hyena is a wild carnivore and an animal who is a scavenger and a flesh eater. Hyenas resemble dogs and are similar to wolves because they travel in packs. They are known to laugh.
Positive: To see a laughing hyena in a dream can represent happiness or joy. Hyenas scattering from you in a dream could symbolize demons leaving your life.
Negative: Seeing a group of hyenas can represent gossip. Hyenas eating flesh can represent carnality or having a fleshly mindset. To see a hyena could represent demonic activity from people around you.
