TALEGHAN, Jan. 07 (MNA) – Two environment collaborators managed to capture images of the Persian leopard in Taleghan, Alborz province, on Friday.
According to Iran Environmental Watch and Wildlife, two environment collaborators crossing their village near the city of Taleqan, found new leopard footprints on the snow.
After a few minutes, they saw a mature leopard only a short distance away, which did not attempt to scape and the two men could capture the image of this valuable species.
According to the census in December 2016, leopard footprints were observed in the same location and environment experts suggest that two leopards mating are likely to live in this area.
A leopardess and her cub were also seen on December 21 at Parvar Protected Wildlife Area in Semnan province.
The Persian leopard is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List. The population is estimated at fewer than 871–1,290 mature individuals and considered declining.
