Video footage of a large leopard roaming through the township of Klipgat in the North West went viral on Wednesday…
A Twitter post by anti-crime activist, Yusuf Abramjee, confirmed that the big cat had been captured after it allegedly escaped from a nearby game reserve.
According to an article in the Daily Sun, the police called in a team from Nature Conservation who were able to track down the leopard, and capture it.
Take a look at some of the footage below:

The last thing a person wants to see in their Kasi is a leopard roaming around.

A leopard is a totem. It’s such a significant spirit animal. For it to just pop up ko klipgat is insane… I got goosebumps just watching that video.
