“Don’t step in the leopard s**t, bwana, it’s terrible stuff.”—Abie Du Plooy, PH, in Zambia, 1987. I was shooting an antelope a day to provision a leopard tree for the next safari, and the cat was pooping up a storm. The next safari never did get the leopard, but ever since, wherever I am, I’ve tried to avoid stepping in leopard s**t.
