I have received an update concerning the leopard attack. I am not in a position to divulge my source details, but they are verified and correct.
“A necropsy (name for a animal autopsy) was performed on the leopard, it was found to be in very bad condition and the results showed the leopard was severely infected with Bovine TB.
The leopard’s stomach was also examined and showed it had no contents and was completely dry (indicating it had not had a meal in quit some time)
. The Leopard’s skull was sent to Pretoria to be tested and scanned for Rabies and the results came back Negative for rabies.
With regards to the leopard fighting with another, we have had no feedback about this or if this is actually true. (this will be up to SANParks to comment on).”
“Curtis is doing fine and was released from hospital on Monday 6 July.
He currently has stitches in his arm and has to report back to the doctor in a weeks time for another check up and hopefully have the stitches removed.
His mental state seems to also be fine and will be going back into the Park as soon as he is cleared to do so.”
I hope this helps.
