BLACK LEOPARD – Eye Surgery

!!! WARNING !!! Contains images of GRAPHIC eye surgery.

Bagheera our oldest black leopard has her eye removed due to the pain associated with her glaucoma, Bagheera is a former pet and was rescued by BCR in 1995.

Bagheera had also been declawed and it was the intention of her owners to keep her as a pet. As usually happens, this plan just didnt work out. When they moved, they had no room for their leopards. How sad that people refuse to think of the long term consequences of impulsive decisions like buying an exotic animal to raise as a pet. It rarely works out for the owners, and definitely not for the animals involved. Though she was bottle fed, she is definitely not tame enough to handle safely.
