The whole of UK saddened when the news about rare snow leopard went viral.

One of the Zoo Keepers at Dudley found the door to Margaash’s enclosure slightly ajar in the late evening. When he looked inside found out that rare snow leopard was missing. While the leopard was one of the big cats of that zoo and so massive that can easily take down any human of the size if the situation appears to be pressing.

The animal escape precautions were immediately taken and the team was provided with firearms to protect themselves and others as well.

Sadly, a senior from the zookeeper team was able to come in close range of Margaash to take the shot and regrettably took her down. Margaash was killed with a single shot so the poor rare species did not have to suffer. The loss is absolutely irreparable as these snow leopards are marked vulnerable on the list of endangered species and their number is keep decreasing.
