Waterhole Wednesday: A Leopard Relocation

A Leopard Relocation

As promised, here are a couple of photos from the leopard relocation:

Our newest residents arrived safely from South Africa and seem to be settling in well. This one is being fitted with his tracking collar.

Both leopards will stay in the holding boma where they can be closely monitored for about two and a half weeks before being released into the reserve.

You can read more about this relocation over at the Steve Spangler Blog but I wanted to give you a sneak peek at these gorgeous felines. We are thrilled to welcome these two to the reserve, they will bring our  leopard population up to six individuals. Please check out last weeks post for some leopard facts and crafts.
