Israeli man in underwear wrestles leopard

I was tempted to title: “Israeli man wrestles leopard in underwear,” but I restrained myself.
Not a sideshow, underwear pervert or advertisement gimmick:
according to the AP,

A man clad only in underwear and a T-shirt wrestled a wild leopard to the floor and pinned it for 20 minutes after the cat leapt through a window of his home and hopped into bed with his sleeping family.
“This kind of thing doesn’t happen every day,” said 49-year-old Arthur Du Mosch, a nature guide. “I don’t know why I did it. I wasn’t thinking, I just acted….Du Mosch’s pet cat was in the bed with him at the time, along with his young daughter who had been frightened by a mosquito in her own room….He said he took it all in stride, “but the kids were excited.

Du Mosch lives in Kibbutz Sde Boker in the Negev desert.
