Former Zimbabwe cricketer Guy Whitthall cheated death by a whisker after being attacked by a leopard early this week.

Guy was attacked while trekking through the conservancy he runs at Humani, Zimbabwe.

He was stabilized at Hippo Clinic before being airlifted from Buffalo Range to Milton Park Hospital for treatment.

In 2013, Whitthall found a huge crocodile under his bed, however he was not attacked.

The cricketer was assisted by his dog Chikara which tried to fight off the leopard.
