Some vultures on this thread!! :evil:

I feel so sorry for the little baby lying there all alone in the beautiful evening light - I'm just a sentimental soul :slap:

Okay my bet is on the Leopard. . .$$$

No disrespect to the little fella.....
At first I was saddened. Then curious. Now...morbid, I guess. Every once in awhile I see it lying there and wish it would just get up, stretch, and walk off into the sunset looking for mom. It looks so peaceful.

On a more scientific note...why has the carcass not bloated up? It has been in the sun all day... (sorry if anyone takes offense to this question, but humans should always remain curious, right?)

My bet is that I might never know what is developing or what comes to eat first, for at work and at home I have not seen one live webcam picture yet, only those the mites post on the thread!!!!!!!
What is wrong with the webcams or certain connections - I see a lot of people are complaining??
Imagine the frustration!

i really doubt the leopard especially with all the lion activity, i reckon the leopard will keep its distance, or if it is interested drag it straight up the nearest tree

tomorrow morning 300 forumites at orpen gate :twisted:
