Wrestling With A Leopard May 29, 2007

Posted by Michael in Man Laws, Personal Experiences.

JERUSALEM – A man clad only in underwear and a T-shirt wrestled a wild leopard to the floor and pinned it for 20 minutes after the cat leapt through a window of his home and hopped into bed with his sleeping family.”This kind of thing doesn’t happen every day,” said 49-year-old Arthur Du Mosch, a nature guide. “I don’t know why I did it. I wasn’t thinking, I just acted.”

Well, that doesn’t happen to me every day either. But when a wild predator jumps through a window onto my bed, I “just act” also. I mean, duh. You’ve got to do something.

This is a pretty lame looking leopard anyway.

Arthur admits that the leopard was not much of a contestant.

Du Mosch said he probably would not have been able to control the big cat were it in better health. As a nature guide, he said, he was familiar with animals and did his best to hold down the leopard without harming it. He said he took it all in stride, “but the kids were excited.”

Kids are like that. They get a huge kick out of watching wild animals jump through the window and wrestle with Dad.

My kids are grown up now, so I just let Mrs. Michael deal with this situation when it arises. I mean, with the Spurs in the playoffs and all, I just don’t have time for that shit.

Um, didn’t geoff post on this, like, yesterday?

2. Wickedpinto - May 29, 2007

geoff seems to be on his game, guys moving well. He needs a co-blogger like. . . . Oh, Say. . . .Mrs. Peel?

3. Mrs. Peel - May 29, 2007

I think the entire blogosphere would collapse into itself in some sort of bizarre warp of the space-time continuum if the “nerd quotient” ever got that high on one blog. That’s probably why Michael hasn’t allowed geoff to be a Main Page Commenter here.

It seems to be serviving the snarky asshole quotient. Hell even the “not so nice, but I thought it was supposed to be nice” quotient.

Is it just me, but why did the story have to report that the guy was wearing only his skivvies?

As for the children, does “excited” mean “this is awesome”, or “oh s&*t! Run!”

That’s probably why Michael hasn’t allowed geoff to be a Main Page Commenter here.

Heh – I never asked. I announced early on that I was going to remain unsullied by posting on a commenting blog.

Plus, most of my stuff is a tad dry for IB.

7. Wickedpinto - May 30, 2007

Mrs. Peel likes it dry!!!

(thats could be totaly misconstrued huh?)

I wrestled a leopard in my underwear. How the leopard got in my underwear, I will never know.
–Israeli Man

9. Wickedpinto - May 30, 2007

I understand that leopards are an inspecific special assignment. Mountain lions, Puma’s and leopards are all the same species, and all live in differnent area’s.

So I don’t know what it is that Tush likes to keep in his underwear, but it’s not unlikely to be a leopard.

10. Wickedpinto - May 30, 2007

Thats the other one, panthers. I think that all 4 are the same species of animal.

11. Wickedpinto - May 30, 2007

I couldn’t tolerate a puma in my pants. That would make me mad.

Two-fer, nice.

Outside of a leopard, a book is an Israeli man’s best friend. Inside of a leopard it’s too dark to read.

13. geoff - May 30, 2007

Tushar D: Did you spot that leopard in that Israeli man’s house?

DaveinTX: Naw, he already had spots.

14. daveintexas - May 30, 2007

Either this leopard is dead or my watch has stopped!

15. John - May 30, 2007

Now why did I immediately think of Wickedpinto when I read this? I can see him: “I said GET DOWN BIOTCH!”

16. Bosk - May 30, 2007

Is that a leopard in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

17. Bosk - May 30, 2007

That’s not a leopard,
It’s Dick Cheney’s condom.

18. John - May 30, 2007

Or Bolton’s mustache.

19. Great Apes Threatened By Global Warming!!! « Innocent Bystanders - May 30, 2007

[…] I’m actually OK with the extinction of great apes. A few years ago, a gorilla jumped through my bedroom window and attacked me, so I had to wrestle with it.  Like that Israeli guy had to wrestle with a leopard. […]
