    herenorthere,

    Sadly, i've seen some humans do much much worse things than a leopard doing that.

    Good for the leopard.
    My next door neighbors lawn man used to toss key limes at my doberman...a really bad move. It took St. Cloud Warlock three months to learn to climb the chain link fence. It only took three seconds for the lawn man to learn to ignore the pain of climbing a very thorny key lime tree...where he stayed for about three hours till I got home.

    LOL! Good for your dobie. Why people want to torture animals I don't know. Personally I think it is a sign of cowardice to pick on something "weaker" than yourself. Not that you'd say a leopard is weaker than a human...obviously!

    I think everybody is missing a very big point here.
    Without any other knowledge than the video, I would think that the people were trying to help the leopard. Either relocate it to a safer place or nursed it back to health. While the man made a bad judgment of poking it to get it out of the cage, they were trying to help it.
    I agree with the statement about torturing weaker beings.
    I try to never hurt, humiliate, or stress any creature for no reason. The only exception would be Andrew.

    yes Ozzy, actually the video is on relocating a leopard. but it does look like to me they were poking it before the cage door was open.

    see this here is a good example of natural selection at work, those who do not poke leopards with sticks do not get attacked by them and therefore survive to reproduce. Now the man in the video did not likely die due to modern medicine which means he may not be removed from the gene pool, atleast until he pokes another leopard with a stick. LOL
