A leopard that attacked dancer Juliet Prowse during a rehearsal for the "Circus of the Stars" television show in September bit the dancer again during a rehearsal Wednesday in Burbank.
Prowse, 51, suffered only minor injuries on the left ear and below the neck in the second attack, said Patty Mayberry, a spokesman for Saint Joseph Medical Center. She was being treated at the hospital Wednesday night, the spokesman said.
The leopard, an 80-pound female named Sheila, was standing behind Prowse with its front paws on the dancer's shoulders when it lunged for her neck after Prowse moved her head, said Dan Jenkins, a spokesman for "Circus of the Stars."
The attack occurred at 4:15 p.m. at NBC television studios while Prowse was rehearsing a portion of her "Circus of the Stars" act for an appearance on the "Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson."
