snow leopards are poached both specifically for their fur  and to protect livestock, some are caught by random methods like snares


the problem is serious and ongoing


at least  4 have been poached per year since 2008,  around 221 to 450 per year



in their remote homes there  could be a whole lot of unreported deaths


the report calls for measures to prevent human   conflict  with snow  leopards, payment of compensation for livestock and for enhanced community conservation projects



please see   http://www.traffic.org    21 OCT HUNDREADS OF SNOW LEOPARDS POACHED EACH YEAR

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
