Leopard Hurts Hunters

In South Africa, a two hunting guides were injured by a wounded leopard. I believe this sort of guide is what used to be called a "white hunter"--a professional who guides amateurs to get their trophy kills as safely as possible. According to Peter Capstick, following up a wounded leopard is just about the most dangerous gig on the planet.

"A foreign trophy hunter had shot and injured a leopard late on Saturday afternoon, and a tracking party set out to find the animal, said ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser.

Instead, the injured leopard stalked and attacked the group, at 09:00 on Sunday.

The leopard darted for the trophy hunter, but the male guide, believed to be in his mid thirties, stepped in front of his client.

The leopard mauled the man's left shoulder, arm, and abdomen, while his wife received multiple lacerations to her arm."
