Leopard in the Bed.

Sleeping in your own bed in Israel, the last thing you might expect is for a leopard to jump in with you!
Clad only in his night clothes, Arthur Du Mosch lunged at the big cat and grabbed its neck, pinning it down for 20 minutes until help arrived.

"This kind of thing doesn't happen every day," the 49-year-old said. "I wasn't thinking, I just acted."

well if i was the one holding the cat i wouldn't want anyone else near me incase it panics the cat further and it ends in a blood bath.

(was half joking anyway)

fluff, the article said it was an elderly leopard, or else it wouldn't be desperate enough to hunt inside.

Jimmy, if he had to hold it for 20 minutes, I guess there would be time for the family to get a picture, after calling animal control.

is that a photo of the actual event? even if he did get a good grip of the cat (seems unlikely) how did the camera not agitate it!

scrap that...why would there be someone with a camera ready when he awoke 'only in his night clothes'

unless the person with the camera put the cat there!

Ok, sorry, for the record, actual quote is below. I forget how bad my memory has become.

"One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know. "
