Guides and guests stood by traumatised this evening as a brutal Alpha male invaded a small unthreatening enclave North of the Ntiakntiak river and butchered its inhabitant.
Despite brave resistance this leonine tyrant savaged its innocent prey in an unprovoked, un-necessary and seemingly unwarranted attack.
Patrick and his guests are understandably distraught. We have lost a member of the family. Just personally I have spent six months in her company, imagine what this is doing to James, Nelson, Patrick and Charles. Expecting to see photos or video? Not from us, I mean how could you? She deserves better.
Let’s remember this remarkable leopard in her prime, not picked apart by a tyrannical adversary.
She was an astonishing feline: brave, loyal, tough, courageous, beautiful but NOT elusive. She was our bank, our inspiration, our figurehead and our confidant. She was our Zelensky.
