Leop­ard cubs caught on film for the first time

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland -

Two rare Amur leop­ard cubs born in the High­land Wildlife Park in Kin­gussie have been caught on cam­era for the first time.

The Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Scot­land an­nounced in July that its Amur leop­ard Arina had given birth, but the num­ber of cubs has not been known as hu­man pres­ence is kept to a min­i­mum.

Mo­tion sen­si­tive cam­eras have now shown two cubs emerg­ing from their den deep within un­der­growth. It is hoped at least one of them could be re­leased into the wild in Rus­sia in the fu­ture.
