The Leo 260M check lasted more than three hours, all this time they were monitored by video cameras installed on the premises. The wild animal displayed a natural human avoidance response, one of the most important conditions for release. He became nervous when he heard the approach of the car, and hid when people appeared in the compound.

In addition, he hunted deer quite successfully.

– The young leopard made mistakes, which he corrected here. Learn, with each attempt the level of skills grows. We note that he is already making a significant cast to the weak point of the barrage. He can grip the same as tigers his age, while his weight is three times less than theirs. Dragging the hunted deer also did not cause difficulties, despite the difference in size between an adult ungulate and a kitten, Ekaterina Blidchenko, an employee of the science department of the Leopard Land Federal State Budgetary Institution, told about the hunt.

According to the staff of the Rehabilitation Center of the Regional Public Organization “Tiger Center”, the leopard feels fine. Finally, their abilities and prospects for release into the wild will be assessed in mid-summer. Before that, another 8-10 deer will be hunted.

Employees of the “Land of the Leopard” rescued a four-month-old predator in the summer of last year near the borders of the reserve. The kitten was emaciated and weighed only 4.5 kilograms, like a house cat. There were small wounds on his body. Perhaps the kitten has strayed from its mother.

They want to release the Red Book cat into the Ussuriysky Reserve (it is under the control of the Federal State Budgetary Institution of the Land of the Leopard), where it is planned to restore the population of the Far Eastern leopard that once lived there.
