Mother’s Day bummer for lost leopard kitten

A leopard kitten separated from its mother in the wild was rescued on Monday near a rubber plantation in southern Krabi province.


A call from the surprised Ban Pho Riang resident who found the waif fetched officials from Khao Phanom Bencha National Park.


They turned the cat over to the Phang Nga wildlife nursery to recover. Park chief Neramit Songsaeng said it would eventually be returned to the wild. 




Neramit pointed out that leopards are protected by law and are listed in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora among the most endangered animals, and as “critically endangered” by the International Union for Conversation of Nature and Natural Resources.

"Separated from its mother"? A mother leopard is capable of looking after its young. More likely, she was shot or trapped.

... or out hunting, only to return to her nest later and find her cub missing.
