It was close indeed. That tracker was lucky he didn’t get his throat opened up.

That was some kind of shooting to not kill the tracker there....scary moment for sure.

HUNTING IN BRITISH EAST AFRICA
By Percy Child Madeira

There is one other beast which is not often considered in the discussion of the most dangerous animals and yet men who have had experience look upon him when he is wounded with a degree of respect that places him not even second to the lion. I mean a wounded leopard He is the sneakiest meanest hunter and the most cruel ferocious and wicked fighter of possibly any of the cat tribe. His tremendous agility and speed exceed the lion’s. He springs upon a man biting the neck and tearing with his hind claws which are nearly as large as a lion's and before it can be guarded against he has almost disemboweled his victim. I have been told by men who have shot both tigers and leopards in India that they would rather follow a wounded tiger into the jungle than they would a wounded leopard and the number of victims claimed by the leopard would make a large total In Africa. The leopard is rarely seen being a night hunter but when he commences to get in his fine work among the flocks the destruction he causes is almost beyond calculation. A lion will go among a herd of cattle and kill one and be satisfied. But when a leopard gets inside a kraal he will frequently kill every animal within sight from the pure love of killing.

That tall Tambuki grass is a recipe for disaster. My worst nightmare is going after a cat in that grass.

Wow, I think that would make me just go back home and look for a white tail.

I keep thinking about the Brittany Boddington situation as I watch the above clip.

What if this fellow had waited another 2 seconds to fire? Would the tracker have survived?

I understand that we will never know...but who could watch something like that happening and not be thinking "I have to do something, and fast"!

To fast or too slow...either one can be really bad. But which one is virtually guaranteed to end with the death of the attacked?

Hey, just thinking out loud here. I know for sure I don't have any definitive answers.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
