Wood -- find some hyenas here (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ash

Here is my best explanation:

'wood' is the definition.

(ash is a kind of wood)

'some hyenas here' is the subsidiary indication.

'some' indicates a hidden word (Some of the parts of the word are used).

'ash' is hidden within 'hyenas here'.

'find' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for ash that I've seen before include "Remains of a fire", "Dusty residue of a fire", "Powdery residue from fire or cigarette", "Cigarette residue", "Tree; cinders", "Hard pale wood", "The rowan tree is the mountain ...", "Remains from the yule-log?", "Burnt residue" and "Silvery-grey".)
