Best Florida Man headlines from 2020: Animal attacks, crime and more

Leopard mauls man who paid $150 for 'full contact experience' at a backyard zoo.


In a South Florida backyard zoo, a man was mauled by a captive black leopard after he paid $150 for a "full-contact experience" to play with the leopard and take pictures.

The owners of the licensed animal sanctuary were charged by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission with allowing full contact with an extremely dangerous animal and was cited for maintaining captive wildlife in an unsafe condition.

Usage of the phrase "you can't fix stupid" seems to have vastly increased in recent years.

Even a kitty cat provides enough "scratchy scratchy" for me :D

:lol: yes exactly.

My cat needs a claw trim but I traumatized myself several years ago trying to do that myself and having the poor cat freak out and bleed all over the place. And with the lockdowns, I don't want to take her into the vet unless I have to.

She's not aggressive but her claws are sharp and she can do some rfeal damage when she gets scared or alarmed.

Our local animal hospital went back to curbside-only service this week. It slows everything down a bit, but I feel like a rich person :D since I never leave the vehicle, even to pay.

We had the chihuahua's nails done since we had been procrastinating on it daily for weeks. It is about as fun as holding a squirrel, even though he has been prescribed 75 mg of trazodone for nail clippings. And the vet techs do a much better job, usually, since he has mostly black nails.

When I take my adult cat to the vet, I usually give her some liquid gabapentin from the vet's office to help calm her down.
