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 "end", "Burned residue", "Part of forest", "Remains from the yule-log?", "deposit", "Timber tree", "Tree with silver-grey bark", "One [TYPE OF TREE]", "Dusty residue of a fire" and "Get the residue".)
