While ordinary house cats may not be endangered, the baby snow leopard is endangered. Fortunately, a male cub was born on Sept. 15 to parents Laila and Yarko as part of the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme.

Lynn Whitnall, a trustee for The Big Cat Sanctuary, said, “We know that our ‘little cub’ will raise vital awareness and funds for her counterparts in the wild, and we will continue to support The Snow Leopard Trust out in the field.” Hopefully this breeding program will create more snow leopards so there will be more snow leopards for everyone to enjoy.
