The Neighborhood Leopard of 1960s Kensington, London

By

10th Jul, 2013

Meet Angela McWilliams and her pet leopard Michael, taking a walk on a leash in London, possibly Gloucester Road or Cromwell Road and in Hyde Park. This will no doubt spark a some fury with a few readers– but just try to remember (and be thankful) that this video is around 50 years old, when the public could still buy leopards and lions on the second floor of the famous London department store, Harrods.

At the 0:45 mark– that awkward moment when you meet a leopard while wearing a leopard skin coat.

The fur coat and pet leopard make you wonder if “secretary” was in fact Angela McWilliams’ primary occupation. Here is a press photograph of her with Michael that I found on eBay.
