Simply Swank in Georgia (Martinez I think) - Wife went there when we were based in Augusta.

Only reason I know that is because, as part of the lockdown, we were throwing out old credit card receipts the other day and that was one we found!

Must admit we did a double take when we first saw the sign over there.

I don't get why people find animals killing other animals entertaining, but it seems to be a frequent theme of this thread.

Definitely one of the most amazing predator-chase-and-kill videos I've ever seen. :thumbup:

Thought they would both be dead or seriously injured but the leopard not only survived, he actually went from hanging onto the hindquarters to a death grip on the throat during the tumble down the mountainside ... AFTER the lengthy airtime when they hit the edge of the cliff together.

Once leopards evolve opposable thumbs, we're f**ked.

I couldn't believe both animals were not killed by the fall.

The longer version, with the aftermath, is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRQXebUBZtI

Start at about 3:40 for the start of the hunts if you don't want the prelims. And of course, you'll have to wear the special glasses* to be able to catch a fleeting, blurry glimpse of her

*not available in all jurisdictions - not suitable for the Welsh*

One French Author (sylvain Tesson) went with Vincent Munier (Great photographer) in Tibet to photograph the fabled snow leopard.


he wrote a book and describes similar hunt technique.

the book only shows if you have special glasses ;)

There's a reason they're so f*cking rare if this is their hunting style.

Summerville or the Medical district? I collaborate with a group on the Medical Campus.

What do you do when you design a motorway but there is a building in the way? And this is no concept.

Jesus Winnie, you didn't pay 60p (12 shillings in old money!) for that in 1974, did you ?

Or did the idea that it might be fake news based on racist stereotyping even cross your mind ?

Handed 'round at your local Lodge meeting ?

So that's why on the week of the 46th anniversary of the Dublin-Monaghan bombings, you decide to put up an Orange propaganda piece on the outrage ?

It's "loose" by the way.

And secondly I deplore and despise SF/IRA. But you know that.

That's not ending well. Infection or maggots are making a home in those wounds.
