A Jungle Funny

A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking
her faithful, aged poodle named Cuddles along for the company. One day
the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long Cuddles discovers
that she's lost. Wandering about, she notices a leopard heading rapidly
