The ambulance staff said that the little snow leopard can eat normally after supplementing nutrition and recovery, and the condition is good. The 1 -year -old Lingxia is almost no stress in the face of the ambulance personnel or facing tourists. If it is raised by the zoo for one year under the conditions, its living habits will be very relatives. Close to interaction, you may not be able to let go.

Regarding the follow -up treatment of rescue, the ambulance personnel said that because they are young in summer, they should not be released. Snow Leopard is the “flagship species” of the Qinghai -Tibet Plateau, which is a national first -level protection animal. Snow Leopard usually lives independently in the age of 2, and 1-2 is a critical period for snow leopards to learn wild survival skills. Often, they need to learn more prey prey, such as rock sheep in Qinghai. Ling Xia left Snow Leopard’s mother alone without knowing it, and lost the opportunity to learn to master the survival skills in the wild. In this case, it is not a suitable choice to return to Lingxia.
