Tel Aviv - (Rotters): It's the ultimate night-time male fantasy: you wake up in the middle of the night, expecting nothing in particular only to find a warm, cuddly pussy snuggled up right beside you, purring sweetly in your ear with anticipation...
For wildlife guide Arthur Du Mosch the fantasy recently turned to reality when what has been described as "an ageing leopard" hopped into bed with him for a bit of company, or maybe something more.
Du Mosch told the press that, dressed only in his pyjamas, he quickly grabbed it by the throat "just like in the movies, sure" and wrestled the big puss to the ground.
"I'd seen Tarzan when I was a boy so the right I knew all the right moves, they came kinda automatic in pinning the intruder in a hald-lock doubel-leg nelson."
For twenty minutes or so he grappled with the beast wile waiting for help to arrive.
"I'm, an ordinary kinda guy," Du Mosch told the press, "and his sort of thing thing doesn't happen every day to me or anybody else I know."
While pinning the furry puss to the ground Du Mosch managed to call the emergency services on his mobile and was eventually rescued.
The leopard was stunned with a sedative bolt and taken away to a local zoo where it subsequently recovered and received matrimonial counselling.
