Cape Town - At first, talks of a free-roaming leopard in Gordon's Bay was considered an old-wives tale to keep children from wandering too far...
UPDATE: Gordon’s Bay leopard relocated to natural environment, away from R44
But in recent years, more and more evidence has surfaced showing that these elusive, endemic Cape cats are in fact ruling the mountains of the Western Cape.
At first, a penguin-eating cat culprit was spotted on camera last year. And now, new evidence shows a spotted cat in broad daylight, perched up against the window of a motorist on the R44.

The video, which has since gone viral on social media, was first uploaded to Facebook by Wonderlings Bed & Breakfast. The video has since been watched over 60 000 times, and shared over 1 500 times.
The Rooi Els B&B posted the short video on Sunday, 26 March, saying "'Our' leopard in Gordon's bay is getting friendly!".
