Driver Pulls Over To Find 'Injured Leopard' Is Actually A Woman's Onesie

Driver Pulls Over To Find 'Injured Leopard' Is Actually A Woman's Onesie

A man who drove past what he thought was a dead leopard in the road pulled over to help it - only to discover it was a woman's onesie.

Dad-of-two Ben Lilly was driving his car on Saturday morning when he caught the spotted furry figure sprawled out on the road.

He spun round to help the injured 'animal', slowly getting out of the vehicle to see what condition the big cat was in.

However, he soon realised that the earsome feline was actually a woman's onesie.

Ben shared his mistake on Facebook in a questionable manner, writing: "Careful! Dead leopard in the road on way to Halifax! Oh no, it's some tart's coat from last night, can't believe I turned back for this!"

Woman's X-Rated Aubergine Received In 'Odd-Shaped Vegetables' Box Goes Viral

Ben, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, said: "My heart was racing with a kind of excitement. I thought 'is this a big cat?' It would be an amazing thing to find.

"I saw something in the distance as I was coming round the bend and slowed down, giving it a wide berth in case it was an injured animal. As I passed it, I looked out the passenger's window and saw the markings on it.

"It had the tail bit on it too, so it looked really real while I was driving.

"I thought 'wow'. You hear of these sightings of big cats and around the Halifax area, there have been reports before.

"I spun round where I could, turned round and drove back along. I looked again - it looked real. I then parked behind it and looked from within the car.

"I got out cautiously, because I didn't want something taking my face off, but as soon as I looked at it from the other angle I started laughing."

Ben, describing the ordeal in great detail, said: "I crept up with my phone out and as the angle changed, I felt like I was on candid camera. I was chuckling to myself. I started laughing then to save my own embarrassment.

"I pulled up to a onesie. That explains the tail on it. At the time I thought it was a woman's fur coat. I thought someone had had a good time and left their coat behind. Living near the Pennines you do often see road kill in the road - foxes, badgers or the odd person's pet.

"When I came back later, someone had pushed it onto the pavement. A few people had commented saying they'd also seen it. Other drivers were obviously thinking the same thing, but I was just silly enough to stop.

"I made a joke [about the 'tart's coat'] which a couple of people might have thought was a little bit sexist, but at the time it had been a Friday night, it was Saturday morning and Halifax is a bit of a drinking town."

It turned out that other people on Ben's Facebook claimed to have seen the 'leopard' too - although it doesn't seem like any of them stopped to get a closer look.
