Adeline Lee: the leopard lady shows her spots

Adeline Lee is Singapore’s leopard lady.

But I wonder what she thinks of Britain’s Tom Leppard?

Yep, this ain’t no joke: Tom Leppard really did think he was a leopard and spend £5,500 to have his body covered in leopard-like spots. He then became a recluse and lived all alone in a small cabin on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Once every week, the ex-soldier would travel by canoe to buy supplies and pick up his pension.

Why he should want to live like this is anyone’s guess.

But is he mad? Well possibly not. After all, at least he isn’t suffering the stresses of the ongoing financial crisis that has ravaged Singapore.

But at age 73, Tom finally called it a day and moved into a friend’s flat complete with electricity, heating and other amenities.

The leopard tamed at last.

Growl!!!!! Very nice, but she doesn’t look much like a leopard to me…

She’s in the jungle now. And with a spear. I hope she’s not hunting leopards…

At last! The lovely leopard lady shows her true spots. Let’s just hope she isn’t tamed as well! Hahaha!!!!
