ongoing snow leopard poaching and deaths

2 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

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
