This videos was shot during the snow leopard survey in upper Dolpo, Mid- Western Himalayas of Nepal. The snow leopard was killed and thrown into a cave to take revenge for it killing village sheep. Unfortunately where humans and these rare cats live so close together snow leopards do sometimes attack village livestock and villagers defend their livelihoods. For this reason it’s important we support the compensation and insurance schemes that organisations like Snow Leopard Trust and Snow Leopard Conservancy set up in these areas of snow leopard habitat. When villagers know they will get money for their dead sheep they are less likely to kill the snow leopards.
