The following is a transcription of an October 23, 1874, Galveston

"We learn from the
Oakville Tribune that some young men of Gussettville killed two leopards
near that place on the night of the 21st ult., one of them being the
largest one ever met with in this country --- the other was quite young,
and scarcely grown. The old one had killed two yearlings and a
horse, and dragged them up together."
