    FOR this conservationist, there is only one way to start her day - by hanging out with leopards. Babette De Jonge, 50, founded Wild Cats World in 2010 to help conserve endangered big cats, such as leopards, black-footed cats and African wildcats. Based in Kirkwood, South Africa, the sanctuary, started in 2012, is home to four leopards, and one cub, cheetahs, servals, caracals and Africa’s smallest cat - the black-footed cat. By building up a mutual respect with the leopards - who were rescued from exploitation - Babette has been able to work hands on with them during their rehabilitation.

      Why don’t more white people shame white people that hunt and poach these beautiful animals it’s the reason most of these animals are becoming extinct so sad.

      Them things are man eaters keep them well fed.

    24. wheelmanstan

      be careful snuggling with a sleeping cat, it can get startled and unintentionally claw you up pretty quickly even if it's never tried to harm you, my cat nearly ripped my ear lobe off when I put my head next to his once, just gotta be careful when waking any animal up, human also haha, fantastic enclosures by the way

    25. KarstDeViz

      i can tell that she's dutch just from her accent.

    33. DiamondBones007

      Fkn just... awful. Treating wild animals like common domesticated house pets. It's disgusting and shameful. Those poor creatures :/ This is not a life.

    34. Frikandel Broodje

      she is Dutch

    35. Jordan Kansley

      Extremely irresponsible to turn your back on them while you close the gate. Need to keep your side open

    36. Luke Manzano

      All the dislikes are from poachers

    37. sangjeong kimcho

      I'M A FULL-TIME ANIMAL WILDLIFE EXPERT BUT DON'T HAVE CONCRETE THINGS TO BACK IT UP JUST YET BUT I THINK LEOPARDS INHERENTLY EXHIBIT MORE HOSTILITY TO HUMANS THAN TIGERS LIONS OR JAGUARS (CHEETAHS ARE GENERALLY NOT HOSTILE TO HUMANS)

    38. sangjeong kimcho

      PPL WHO KNOW WHO I AM AFTER THE CRIM AND CIV TRIALS ARE GUINNA THINK: "YEAH WE ALL READ UP ON HIM AND HE'S GOT $51B+ SO HE MUST BE LIVING THE HIGH LIFE 24/7/365 BECAUSE AFTER ALL HE NEVER HAD A DAY OF VACATION OR A 'FUN REAL EXPERIENCE' FOR HIS PRIME OF ADULTHOOD' WELL, NOT QUITE, I'LL MOSTLY BE IN PARTS OF AFRICA AND SIBERIA LOOKING LIKE A 99 PERCENTER- NOT KIDDING WHEN I TALK ABOUT MY PASSIONS LIKE THAT!

    46. John E

      You "rescued" animals from one prison, and then put them in another prison. That shows how much you "care". Maybe you can face these truths, maybe not: 1. You foolish humans are the only problem these animals are facing. The one and only way to "rescue" them is to get out of the way and let nature do its work. 2. Leopards (your favorite) are solitary and independent. So cuddling them all day may be something you want, but not what they want. They prefer to be left alone and to be illusive for most of the day WITHOUT you watching them If you can swallow these truths, I'll go on with the list

    47. Scorpio delinquent

      I'd love this doing job, I want my leopard.

    48. linda parsons

      Leopards and tigers are the wildest of the big cats and the hardest to tame.

    64. Александр Горчаков

      Подозрительно добрый леопард, они ж злющие как сатана

    65. Mark Heyes

      Excellent work you are doing

    66. CaptainManzana

      Having two males together in one enclosure is not safe, especially for leopards since they are antisocial.

    67. Abii Ashraf

      We're just fascinated with the humans & wild animals bonding but in reality these people just upload these videos to attract rich people who think spending money on these animals will help them sleep better at night while. ✌️

      How are the cats acquired? If they are placed there after being seized from an illegal operation, they are rescued. If they are bought from game farms for example, they are not rescued, they are purchased.
