NAIROBI - A 73-year-old Kenyan grandfather reached into the mouth of an attacking leopard and tore out its tongue to kill it, authorities said Wednesday.
Peasant farmer Daniel M’Mburugu was tending to his potato and bean crops in a rural area near Mount Kenya when the leopard charged out of the long grass and leapt on him.
M’Mburugu had a machete in one hand but dropped that to thrust his fist down the leopard’s mouth. He gradually managed to pull out the animal’s tongue, leaving it in its death-throes.

I can't imagine how it died. Must have been pulling really hard. :Puzzled: I think the machete would still be the faster and safer way to go...
Ripping the tongue out would probably cause a lot of bleeding. Maybe it died from blood-loss.
Yeah, thats one tough senior! :eek:
