This video says about itself:

When the Leopard Lies Down With the (Impala) Lamb

16 December 2015

Incredibly rare video of a leopard looking after a lost impala lamb.

Taken near Sabi Sands in the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

A man from Middelburg had a coat of leopard fur for sale on an auction site. The garment was seized by the Dutch Food and Goods Authority (NVWA).

In the coat, the pelts of minimally three leopards had been processed, writes Omroep Zeeland. The coat might have been sold for approximately 2,500 euros.

The leopard is a protected species. Strict rules apply to the marketing of products in which its fur is processed.

Police have indicted the man.
