There is a reason why leopards are considered dangerous game.
As careful and well trained as African hunting guides are even they sometimes can get surprised. In this case the leopard was not the intended target, but in Africa you must always keep your head on a swivel.
The Hunting Facebook page reported that while Frontier Safaris owner Barry Burchelle was hunting Jackal. A huge leopard attacked one of the guides, Dyan. Another man, Dale Venske , who we assume was another guide or a hunting partner, was able to kill the cat before it could kill Dyan.
The pictures are brutal and Dyan is lucky to be alive. I know these men respect what these animals are capable of and took every precaution available but nature is sometimes unpredictable.
Please pray for a speedy recovery
