Can you find one five figure number, with distinct digits between 1 and 9, which satisfies all four of the following equations?

SNAKE * 2 = MERES
COYPU * 8 = POODLE
TIGER * 13 = BEWAIL
OKAPI * 14 = HIJACK

Repeated letters within an equation refer to the same digit. The same letter appearing in different equations does not necessarily refer to the same digit.

The puzzle can be solved from just two equations. The other two are for fun/reference.

This is similar to Can't see the wood for the trees

That's excellent Dej Mar! :)

I must admit that I really struggled with the *3, 4 and 5, which is why I used the other three! It's great that you came up with them in just a flash. Thanks :) Josie

PS I'll provide the link to yours (and Charlie's) before I publicise the solution.
