Tuesday this week we received a call from Park visitor Tim Smith who was in the Pilanesberg at the time of the incident. Tim advised us that 2 male leopard had just had the most horrendous fight and the older leopard was not looking good.

Normally one would want to leave nature to take it’s course, but leopard are on the endangered list, so we intervene and assist if possible.

Sadly this leopard, known fondly as Caesar, did not make it. His head injuries were quite extensive… He had a good long run in the wild and has gone to chase impalas in the sky.

Thanks Tim and Dustin for your images used here…
