“Javan Leopard Release Program” – newcomer!
What are people doing to these amazing creatures and why we keep on wondering. When this female was brought in she was more dead than alive…..Badly treaten and injured!
In our “Javan Leopard Release Program” there’s a lot of struggle to actually being able to release as different parties are working against each other, even politics. The leopards in the rescue center better not stay too long in order to being able to easily release them again. And for some the time is critical already.
But now another sad case, a female leopard brought in yesterday at the Cikananga Wildlife Rescue Center. She was captured in the wild and kept in a small cage after that. The poor leopard is in such a bad state that the wildlife center and our partnerproject Wanicare Foundation aren’t sure she will be able to make it. Only one eye left, no muscles and she was starving. Now first has to be seen if the meds (antibiotics) are working, and to get her in better condition, but if a release will ever be possible again?
