Who was Glen Leary ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Not quite - though he was attacked by a leopard in KNP .

Read the book : Kruger - Portrait of a National Park by David Paynter & Wilf Nusey .
History : From Primeval to Present .

John Glen Leary was the father-in-Law of Malelane Game Ranger Harold Trollope :hmz:

He was attacked by a Leopard on the 3rd of August 1926 and Ranger Trollope shot the Leopard. :whistle:

Vinkie, OQ quizzes mean that, as soon as the quizzer confirms that a question has been suitably answered, anybody can then ask the next question. :thumbs_up:

No problem, Vinkie. :thumbs_up: But remember that no-one was ever any good at asking questions at the beginning of their appearance on these quizzes; and the research in posing a question, and sifting the answers for the correct one, is well worth the exposure. And, what is wonderful about this forum group of quizzers is that it is virtually impossible to ask a really stupid question - if you're researched something, and it's appropriate to its quiz, it's an excellent Q and people will applaud you for it! :D :D
