This is a leopard going to town on a piñata

How do the folks at the Big Cat Rescue in Tampa celebrate Cinco de Mayo? By pitting one of their finest leopards against a piñata that bears a resemblance to Toucan Sam, naturally.

I’m genuinely surprised by how much of a fight this piñata put up against the leopard. I figured it’d be one swipe and instant death for the fake bird but apparently not so much. It’s also reasonably adorable how the leopard plays with it like your house cat might play with a mouse on a string, assuming you can look past the fact that the leopard could do that while simultaneously rip your intestines out in one swoop, then roll around with it cutely nestled in its mouth.
