Snow leopards steal camera trap


Camera traps have provided a rare glimpse of snow leopard family life in Tajikistan.

Fauna and Flora International (FFI) and wild cat conservation organisation Panthera placed 11 camera traps around the Zorkul nature reserve.

The project caught five of the elusive cats on camera, including a family with two cubs.

Two of the young snow leopards also managed to remove one of the automatic cameras - and caught themselves on film in the process.
