The image is printed landscape orientation and centered on the page. The image depicts a crowd of people in the left foreground fending off a spotted panther in the right foreground. The panther is rising from a seated position and appears as if it is making its way to the four people on the left. One woman is facing the panther and is holding a large stick towards it. She is wearing a loose dress and her bonnet is falling off of her head. Three male figures stand beside her at left; one of them faces away from the panther. Their eyes are only open slightly and their lips are spread apart. The man in the extreme left foreground holds his hands to his face. In the background behind the figures, the sky is clouded. At right, behind the panther, is a large tree wrapped in vines and grapes. There is a wooden wall behind the tree.
