Media Release: Game Ranger kills leopard in Kruger Park

Date: 2003-05-29

Mr. Mathebula was busy inspecting some game for foot and mouth disease, when the leopard attacked him and attempted to grab his head and hand simultaneously. Mr. Mathebula, talking from his hospital bed was still astounded at the power he had to kill the animal, and was very thankful for the fact that he had an axe with him.
