Taxidermy: Leopard (Panthera pardus) circa 1930, large flat skin rug with no backing material, 267cm long , 161cm across the forelimbs

Accompanied by framed provenance:
This Leopard (chui) was shot in the 1930's by Howell Augeraud who was farming sheep at Supuko, a 3500 acre farm on the Aberdares at Thomson's Falls, Kenya. It had been attacking the sheep and Howell and his teenage nephew Ben Allison set off into the forest to find it. After a while Ben decided to sit down, and took his rifle to pieces to clean it, he looked up and saw the Leopard looking at him. Howell managed to shoot it just in time as it sprang at Ben. Ben became head of the prison service in Kenya during the Mau Mau years of the 1950's. He finished his career as Governor of Durham prison. The farm changed from sheep to cattle and was taken over by Isabel and Richard Winnington-Ingram in 1958 and later bought by the Kenya Government in 1963 on getting their independence.
