PHILADELPHIA - A mom captured a sweet moment between her daughter and a rare leopard at the Philadelphia Zoo.
Lara Fraser shot a video on May 12 that shows 2-year-old Rylee having a "play date" with an Amur leopard and her favorite stuffed animal, Kitty.
Rylee waved the toy in front of the glass barrier housing the leopard and laughed hysterically as the big cat frantically wiped its paws on the glass.
