Imam MalikDisapproved6:145 implies that whatever is besides what is mentioned in the verse is permitted. Reconciled between the verse and the Narration of Abu Thagaba by construing the proscription laid down in the narration to imply abomination
Imam ShafiProhibited (the hyena and the fox may be eaten, and the predators are those that attack humans, like the lion, leopard, and the wolf)Narration of Abu Huraira includes an addition over what is in the verse prohibited the flesh of predators
Excluded hyena and others based on narration of Abd al-Rahman ibn Ammar
Imam Abu HanifaProhibited (anything that eats meat is a predator, so that even the elephant, the hyena, and the gerbil are also included under predators, as are cats.)Narration of Abu Huraira includes an addition over what is in the verse prohibited the flesh of predators
