Stand Up For Yourself [via Nina reznick]

The extraordinary  scene was captured by  photography student Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire. 

A mouses appeared in  the enclosure after  the keeper had dropped in the meat for the  leopard. He didn't take any notice of the  leopard, just went straight over to the meat and  started feeding himself.' 

'But the  leopard was pretty surprised - she bent down and  sniffed  the mouse and flinched a bit like she was  scared. In the meantime the mouse  just  carried on eating like nothing had  happened. 

Even a gentle  shove does not deter the little creature from  getting his fill... Sheena batted  the mouse a couple of times to try to get it  away from her food.'  But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on.' the mouse  continued to eat the leopard's lunch  and show the  leopard who was the Boss.  Just proves  no one can push you around  without your permission.
