Leopard kills leopard when zoo tries mating them

ERIE, Pa. – A male leopard has killed a female leopard after workers at a Pennsylvania zoo put them together in an off-exhibit area in hopes they would mate.

The Erie Times News (http://bit.ly/1dMRgkB ) reported the attack occurred Monday at the Erie Zoo.

The zoo’s executive director, Scott Mitchell, said the 5-year-old male, Edgar, killed a 7-year-old female, Lina.

Mitchell said the female cat was in heat at the time of the attack, and the zoo’s staff is at a loss to explain it. The animals had been paired in the past without incident.

Mitchell said his staff is devastated.

He said a veterinarian and other staff were present, and they separated the animals.

The male will continue to be on exhibit.
