Aside from the physics of reaching in and taking a risk with regards to teeth, claws, etc., who on earth would think that tearing a creature’s tongue out would be the right way to incapacitate the leopard.
I’m all in favor of practical science knowledge – and we now know that it’s possible for even an old man to tear a leopard tongue out. Thank God for that! But how many Kenyans died along the way of trying out all the other combos? Is this the sort of things that old men fuss about while rocking on their porches at night?
Old Man No. 1: Naahhhhh! The best way is to try to gouge their eyes out, then rip off its tail and use it to hog-tie the legs.
Old Man No. 2: Next time I see one of these bastards, I’m going to see if I can’t just grab ahol’ of its tongue like this and pull it right out!
