Jessica Leidolph Wiki – Jessica Leidolph Biography
Jessica Leidolph is a photo model a leopard has mauled during a photoshoot at a retirement home for show animals in eastern Germany.
The woman, described as an animal lover and a photo model, suffered severe head injuries inside an enclosure home to two leopards, Troy and Paris.
Police said she was taken to hospital on Tuesday with serious injuries.
She is 36-year-old.
The model received injuries on her head during Tuesday’s attack and was taken to a speciality clinic by helicopter.
The animal owner was being investigated on suspicion of negligent bodily harm, according to DPA.
A public health officer visited the compound on Wednesday to check whether the animals were adequately kept and if the facility met regulatory standards, DPA said.
The news agency reported that the animal handler has owned the leopards since 2019 and worked for 20 years as an animal trainer for circuses and amusement parks.
Animal Owner Being Investigated
The focus is on the 48-year-old owner of the leopard involved in the attack, one of two she keeps along with other animals at a compound in the town of Nebra in eastern Germany, DPA said.
A mobile alert that the leopard had then run away turned out to be false.
Burgenland authorities said there was no danger to the broader population. An investigation was taking place into what happened at the animal home in Nebra in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.
German tabloid Bild named the victim Jessica Leidolph. It is unclear what she was being filmed for and who had organised the shoot. According to her website, Ms Leidolph has her horse, cats, pigeons and parrots.
