Leopard Attacks Juliet Prowse

September 28, 1987|From Associated Press

Actress-dancer Juliet Prowse was bitten on the neck today by a leopard that nearly punctured a vital artery as the entertainer rehearsed in Northridge for a "Circus of the Stars" television special, a show spokesman said.

Prowse, who turned 51 last Friday, was taken to Granada Hills Community Hospital where doctors closed puncture wounds with five stitches, said Dan Jenkins, publicist for the show. "One of the punctures was centimeters from the carotid artery, in other words, damn close," Jenkins said. The artery is the main supplier of blood to the brain.
