Female leopard killed by male leopard in Brno zoo

A breeding attempt at Brno zoo on Monday ended fatally for a female leopard, which was meant to be mated with a male leopard. The male, who had shown no prior signs of aggression, attacked the female and strangled her. A spokesperson for the zoo said on Monday that breeders were unable to intervene and separate the two. She added that within the species, such attacks are relatively frequent.
