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
