Snow leopard chasing ibex filmed by soldiers in China

SL pic China by soldiers XinjiangThis photo is rare for a number of reasons. Firstly it shows a snow leopard in Xinjiang, China at over 5,000 metres. Secondly it is not a camera trap photo but one of a series taken by Chinese soldiers who were on patrol near the China – Pakistan border. They were able to film the cat from close up as it stayed motionless near a river and then chased ibex, a small wild goat and one of snow leopards favourite prey.
