!!!WATCH THIS RARE FOOTAGE OF A SNOW LEOPARD “CHUFFING” HELLO TO BIG CAT KEEPERS!!!
Even though Snow Leopards are classed as a greater cat just like the lion and tiger, it cannot roar like it’s relatives!
They can hiss, mew, growl, wail and chuff however, watch this rare footage of HERCULES our male Snow Leopard chuffing at his BCR friends!
When a distressed hawk was spotted in our male snow leopard enclosure we had to act fast! Hercules was separated into the other side of his enclosure and given a rabbit to eat and keep him occupied. Director of Operations – Scott Lope then had the job of catching the bird, so we could release it away from the snow leopard enclosures! Big Cat Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charity dedicated to the care of exotic cats. We provide a permanent home for unwanted wildcats and we educate the public in order to eliminate the causes of abandonment and abuse.
When a raccoon was spotted above one of our snow leopard enclosures, BCR staff and volunteers sprang into action! The raccoon had a plastic jar stuck on it’s head and was very distressed, Scott managed to net the raccoon and the jar was dislodged. The raccoon was fine and was released far away from the big cat enclosures!
