An injured leopard attacked and wounded a husband and wife guide team Sunday at a game farm near Polokwane in South Africa.

An emergency response spokesman says the two were attacked while they were helping a trophy hunter in tracking down a leopard he shot Saturday. However, the wounded animal tracked the hunter instead, mauling the male guide when he stepped between the leopard and the hunter.

The spokesman says the man suffered injuries to his arm, left shoulder and abdomen, and his wife had lacerations to her arm.

Both were taken to a hospital for treatment.
