The revenge of the leopard

Leopards very rarely attack humans unless they feel threatened, are wounded or have become too old to hunt down wild animals! In this example however, the situation is rather different…

The story takes place in Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya. Local game rangers are busy relocating a leopard that caused some damage to the nearby cattle stock of surrounding villages! Villagers were worried they could be next (and I don’t blame them)…

Familiar with the expression “you reap what you sow”, right?! Well then, watch the following and you’ll surely understand what I’m talking about…

N.B. Viewer discretion is advised!

Unfortunately I couldn’t get the full version of the story. To watch it in its entirety, visit Untamed & Uncut: Leopard Attack!

There are rules to remember from this:

1. Never irritate a frightened cat, whether it is a leopard, a lion…whatever the animal may be, don’t play around with WILD creatures! And never poke an angry wild cat with a stick! 😉

2. Always make sure your windows are rolled up while observing dangerous animals on your safari. You just never know what their reactions may be.

3. Stay calm at all times. I know this is easier said than done, but by losing your temper it happens to make things even worse! If the ranger had stayed calm he may have been able to roll up his window before the leopard’s attack.

    Hey there, thanks a lot for the comment! 🙂

    You're absolutely right, leopards are very quick, although not the quickest! What makes them incredibly unpredictable is their agility & suppleness. They are especially dangerous when wounded, cornered or persistently annoyed. 😉 🙂

    My jaw literally dropped while watching this. Makes you remember how powerful wild cats can be.
