Leopard Lady Living With Wild Cats | BEAST BUDDIES

FOR this conservationist, there is only one way to start her day – by hanging out with leopards. Babette De Jonge, 50, founded Wild Cats World in 2010 to help conserve endangered big cats, such as leopards, black-footed cats and African wildcats. Based in Kirkwood, South Africa, the sanctuary, started in 2012, is home to four leopards, and one cub, cheetahs, servals, caracals and Africa’s smallest cat – the black-footed cat. By building up a mutual respect with the leopards – who were rescued from exploitation – Babette has been able to work hands on with them during their rehabilitation.

This reminds me of this show I used to love, fatal attractions, people being eaten by big cats and poisonous snakes and crocodiles and hippos and the like.
Think I’ll watch it again, to convince myself NOT to adopt a big cat myself.
One more amazing human…. Of course the cats have been amazing too…
