Snow leopard dies in Indian nature park

Sunday 29th of July 2007 A snow leopard has died at a nature park near here, Himachal Pradesh wildlife officials said Sunday.

Sapna, a female, died Saturday at the Kufri nature park, 16 km uphill from here. A chronic stomach ailment is said to be the reason behind the death.

The leopard left behind her male mate. The pair was brought to Kufri from a zoo in Darjeeling some two years ago.

This is the second time the Kufri park has lost a snow leopard, a highly endangered species found in the high Himalayas.
