Rare Amur Leopard Captured for Study

, ,

You or I would never be permitted to snare, dart, and study examples of the rare Amur leopard, Panthera pardus orientalis, but some moonbat with Ph.D. affiliated with an impressive sounding organization like the Wildlife Conservation Society can jet over to Siberia to reduce one of the rarest critters out there to possession with a snare, shoot it with a tranquillizer dart, then sexually molest the sleeping tabby in order to establish “scientifically” its capacity to reproduce.

Then, you see, the sort of person photographed with the leopard can inform us authoritatively that “only 30 individual Amur leopards remain in the wild,” and go home armed with all the information needed to enable a tiny group of self-appointed academics “to determine appropriate conservation actions,” i.e., to regulate the interactions of the rest of the 6.5 billion human residents of the earth with wildlife. Bah, humbug!

One Feedback on "Rare Amur Leopard Captured for Study"


I’m a 17 year old high school student doing research on the amur leopard and I find this article worded very inappropriately and it’s very disturbing and I was wondering if this page could either be changed or removed. saying that they’re sexually molesting the animal while its asleep to see its capabilities of reproduction is a very gross way to say that you’re examining the reproductive system. Thanks for understanding.
