Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Maybe something like this has happened to you. An Israeli nature guide, Arthur du Mosch, was in bed when his cat climbed in. And then his little daughter was frightened by a mosquito in her own room and she had to climb in with him. And then a leopard came in the window and hopped into bed too. Fortunately, the leopard was not in good shape. Mr. Du Mosch wrestled the leopard to the floor and held it for 20 minutes until help arrived.
