The following video footage shows the same leopard that attacked tour guide Curtis Plumb jumping up at a car window one hour beforehand:

Later on Plumb escaped the leopard’s clutches just outside the Skukuza Camp by reversing the vehicle over the animal before another car in the safari convoy did the same in an attempt to prevent any further harm.

The leopard was euthanised later the same day of the attack.

These photos and video illustrate the importance of keeping windows closed at all times when approaching dangerous animals.
