Snow Leopards Rebounding in Afghanistan:  A Bad Rap
A  snow leopard peers over a snowbank in a recent camera-trap  picture. The  big cats have earned a bad reputation among some people  across their  range because of the big cats’ knack for preying on  livestock such as  sheep and goats, Zahler noted.
“In   Afghanistan, however, our data strongly suggests that they aren’t   taking much livestock at all, and I’d hypothesize that’s because   densities of their primary prey—ibex and Marco Polo sheep—are still   relatively high,” he said. “In turn, locals here don’t tend to view snow   leopards the way they may elsewhere in the world.”
Zahler hopes to keep it that way by promoting projects in the region such as leopard-proof corrals to protect livestock.

Snow Leopards Rebounding in Afghanistan:  Scratching Post
A snow leopard is caught rubbing up against a rock in the Afghan mountains.
The   new snow leopard research is part of larger efforts to safeguard   wildlife and natural resources in Afghanistan’s rural areas, according   to the Wildlife Conservation Society. The  snow leopard study also  comes on the heels of other recent work by the  conservation group,  which showed many of Afghanistan’s large mammals are doing surprisingly well in the nation’s remaining forests.
