Following up from yesterdays post, a Russian media report says Mongol has been released. According to AFP news service Putin had been to see Mongol in his cage. “What a beautiful little cat,” Putin, dressed in a Russian hat and a quilted jacket marked with the Russian eagle and the initials V.V. Putin, whispered as he stared at the snow leopard.
Reports in the snow leopard research community say Mongol spent hours battering himself against the cage to the point where his nose was bloodied. Here are photos of Mongol in the cage he was kept in for the last week. An absoloute disgrace!
