The Opposite of Hunting.
By Ali Khurshid: the gorgeous snow leopard was rescued by this man, a local of Sost in Upper Hunza.Since then she has learned to play hide and seek with him and hone some of her hunting skills. This is a triumph of the eternal bond between man and beast.
It’s the opposite of hunting. Since only a true champion of a man can care about a lion like this? And not cowardly want to shoot it.
They have plans for her now: she is about to get a mate and be set free in a very carefully thought out initiative involving a team from the US.
Just two years old now she has her future in front of us. Just needs a bit of help from humans.
If you have time go play with her! She will try her best to jump and claw at you, but she knows its all fun and games.
Someone you miss when you get home.
