Leopards of Dead Tree Island

Leopards of Dead Tree Island
A dramatic, real-life tale of three leopards plays out in Botswana's Okavango Delta. This is prime territory for Africa's most secretive big cat, and although leopards normally avoid contact with each other, one island is the common hunting ground of three individuals drawn together by changing seasons and the movement of their prey. What unfolds is an in-depth look into their lives, following the tension, drama and in the end, heart-wrenching tragedy as all three seek one goal.
