Was this not the  leopard story   of  years ago .. i see its 1964 .. about the time .. we were shyt scared after hearing this story ..  walks  home in the dark  were  fraught with the fear of the leopard .. in previous post I  mentioned I  learnt  to scale  lamposts  quicktime  iin the unlikely event ..

I remember a leopard around town in the 70's - it can't be the '64 one i remember as i was only born in that year.  I also remember being poep scared. i have a vague memory of hearing about someone meeting it in an alley at night and scaling a fence in fright or the leopard was on the fence - something to that effect.
