REMARKABLE INSTINCT
A few days ago the people in charge of Mr. J.C. NAUDE’s farm, at Winterhoek, were surprised to see a mare, belonging to the farm, running about the homestead, neighing loudly and evincing great uneasiness. As the mare was known to have a young foal it occurred to the men that something might have befallen it, and they immediately left their work and proceeded to the place where the mare had been feeding the day before. As soon as the men left the homestead the mare followed; and its foal was discovered half eaten by a tiger. The trap was laid for the animal, baited with the remains of the foal, and the next evening the tiger was captured. The foal was the progeny of a fine blood horse and of considerable value.
