The 73 year old man-leopard decided he was too old to live in the wild.
"I had to canoe to Kyle once a week for shopping and it was getting too hard for me - I was one big wave away from disaster. It’s a pretty nasty stretch of water.
"About six weeks ago a friend with a boat offered to take me off and I just decided there and then to go."
Man-leopard, we will miss you! By the way, What Were You Thinking!
