A very sad turn of events, a poaching incident involving female snow leopard emerged on Friday.
A female snow leopard, listed as an endangered species of wildlife, was killed in Hopper Valley, Gilgit Baltistan.
As per the reports, a search operation is underway to recover the two cubs of the dead mother.
Snow leopards are listed as endangered, with only 8000 left in the world and less than 400 in Pakistan.
Baltistan Wildlife Conservation and Development Organization (BWCDO) has been working with local villagers to protect and conserve them.
Their population has been rising, however, Covid19 has affected the conservation project financially.
