Leidolph says that she underwent surgery after her blow, which left her with several head injuries.
“She kept biting my cheek, ear and head repeatedly,” she told Bild, a German tabloid that she has modeled for in the past.
Police are investigating the 48-year-old owner of the leopard on suspicion of negligent bodily injury. Public health officials are also examining the shelter to determine if it meets safety standards.
Leidolph was reportedly attacked by Troja, a 16-year-old leopard who has been at the shelter since 2019.

Troja and the other leopard, 18-year-old Paris, used to appear in Panasonic television commercials, according to a report by Bild.
The owner of the shelter worked for 20 years as an animal trainer for circuses and amusement parks, reports dpa.
His refuge, Seniorenresidenz für Showtiere, is home to more than 130 retired animal artists, including big cats, seals, pigs and ponies.
The owner has declined to comment on the incident to date and the shelter has not released a comment.
