Snow Leopards are Being Harmed
When hunters kill the wild sheep there isn't enough food for the Snow Leopards. So they are forced to eat animals in the local farms to survive. The farmers get mad and kill the Snow Leopards for eating their animals. WWF is working with the local farmers to get them to spread awareness that if you kill the Snow Leopards prey they will eat animals from local farms. That is bad because if they kill goats the farmers can't get milk. Hopefully hunters follow these orders and let the Snow Leopards live.
