Hyaenas no not take food back to feed their cubs, nor do they regurgitate meat at the den, as wild dogs do. There is fierce competition between adult hyaenas at carcasses, and any food is consumed as quickly as possible. If a mother tried to take food back to the den it would probably be stolen along the way. She would also have to do this at the start of the meal, and forfeit her own share. Regurgitating food is impossible as hyaena’s very strong gastric juices start digesting any meal very quickly. The safest and most effective way of utilising food is to eat it as soon as it is available, then deliver it to the cubs as fresh, nutritious milk.
