Most impalas run for their lives at the sight of a leopard. But this youngster seems intent on befriending one. This bizarre footage shows the young antelope nuzzling the killer cat’s nose and mouth as it lazes in the clearing. And even when the leopard starts playing a little rough it makes no attempts to leave. Game ranger Estiaan Houy filmed the encounter while out with guests in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. He says the amiable interaction lasted for an hour before the leopard strolled into the bush followed by the impala. It’s not known what happened afterwards but as leopards like all cats are prone to toying with their prey it’s likely the apparent friendship only lasted until dinner time.
