Description

Excerpt from The African Repository and Colonial Journal, Vol. 6: January, 1831 In India there is a species ofthe Leopard about the size ofa greyhound, marked with spots pretty much like the rest ofthe kind, but of which the ground colour is less brilliant yellow, inclining to tawness. This species of leopard is frequently tamed and trained to hunt the antelope, and other beasts of the chase. It is carried in a small kind of wagon, chained and hoodwinked, until it approaches the game, when it is unchained and let loose on the pursuit. At first it begins by creeping along close to the ground, squatting, and concealing itself as much as possible, until it gains an advantageous position. It then darts on its prey with extraordinary agility, frequently making five or six amazing bounds. If it does not suc ceed in this first effort, it desists from any other pursuit, and returns to its master.
