I celebrate this good news with everyone! I was cautiously optimistic considering the horrific injury and didn’t blame you James for thinking the eye was gone. I cringed when I saw all the various images…SO painful. But what’s most important is that he is healing and successfully hunting. He will adapt, but he suffered.

Sooo happy

So pleased to see he’s on the mend. I said at the time that this is one pretty tough customer. You just can’t keep a good leopard down!

So very pleased about this. It was a HORRIBLE injury. I certainly didn’t think, from pics, that the eye was whole at all! Cats of all sizes are marvellous survivors though. Delighted he is so much better and can hunt so successfully. Wendy M

@James thanks for the update really good news!
Now do you by any chance have any news on Mfumo from the Birminghams?? He has not been seen in quite a while or no update on him??

Jill Larone

Fantastic news, James! Hopefully he hasn’t lost sight in the injured eye but he certainly looks much better now that the swelling is coming down.

James, thanks so much for the update. We saw this leopard the day after the injury and things did not look good. Very pleased that his recovery seems to be proceeding nicely. Keep us posted!

Certainly made my Monday morning reading your good news about the Anderson male. Animals have a remarkable way of healing themselves and hopefully he will not have lost much sight in that eye. Time heals….
On another note, is there someone special I should contact for a stay in Varty Camp for a few days mid November this year? Really want to visit!!

Glad to hear it made your morning Denise. Animals are incredibly resilient and can teach us so much about how to adapt to the wilderness. I have sent you a mail regarding your proposed stay in Varty camp in November.

One of wildlife’s great stories, that the Anderson male still has his eye and I was thrilled at the news.

Oh thank you for the update. Wow that eye really looks bad, but glad that he’s whole & on the mend ?

YAY for Mr Anderson. I just love his ‘gothic’ eyes. I am glad he is doing well.
