Description: No claw marks. Muddy patch near buildings, was full of tadpoles, stranded as the water dried up. Suspect that what was the attraction to this muddy spot, but unlike typical cat behavior to walk it very slushy wet mud.

Description: Livestock shepherd reported three sheep missing that was probably killed. About a month ago the shepherd close to this location saw a female with a cub. About 15km to the north close to Armanshoek I followed another track last week. The track led to the killing spot of a goat belonging to another shepherd living at Armanshoek. Wonder if this is the same one?

Description: A night to be remembered: lightening storm, rain, no stars for guidance, spiders every where, three individual leopard sightings. The first one (pictured) we worked so hard for - she kept eluding us, but after an hour, we did find her and I was able to snap some truly horrible photos, simply proof that I had spotted one. On the way back, down a wide open 4x4 track, a different leopard crossed our path… this after getting lost in the thick bush and having to push the landie off of a downed tree. We were in disbelief… how could this sighting be so easy after the effort we put into the first?
