The Little Boy, 3, was with his nanny at a staff quarters in Queen Elizabeth National Park. He left the Safari Lodge on Friday night and followed his nanny. The boy's mother is park ranger and was working at the time.

A Local Newspaper, The Kampala Post reported the boy as Elisha Nabugyere. As the toddler walked behind his nanny, unaware that he was there, a leopard lunged at the little boy and dragged him away.

His father, Francis Manana Nabugyere, told the socket of his son's skull "and some other bones"

Nabugyere said the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) had left his son's remains in a coffin.

"I did not talk to them about the incident, but I would expect something reasonable to compensate me. My son's life is gone," he said, adding that UWA should do more to help the staff and theirs To protect children.

Bashir Hangi, a spokesman for the Natural Department, told the Telegraph the nanny was trying to chase after the animal but was unsuccessful.

"The maid was unaware that the child was following her," Hangi said. "She heard the kid screaming for help, she intervened, but it was too late – the leopard had disappeared into the bush with it and a search was done until we got the skull the next day." [196592002] Hangi said the Outlet Park Rangers were still trying to "find" the leopard with the intention of "catching" him and removing him from the wild, for once he has eaten human flesh, the temptations are high to eat another human being. It's getting dangerous.
