While Hyenas do usually work as a group, they can occasionally make a kill of their own.

Here are some examples:

Solitary Hyena hunts Impala.






^Hyena jumps into the waterhole to catch the Impala at 3:30

Why do spotted hyenas have a habit of biting buffalo by the balls?












And its not only the testicles, but they to also tend to bite the anus until its mauled and pulled outwards.
