Forest rangers in Sertar county, southwest China’s Sichuan Province have spotted a snow leopard in the region for the first time. Rangers spotted the big cat approaching a herd of blue sheep, a major food for snow leopards. They whistled to alert the bovids and filmed the scene with a cellphone. Snow leopards are listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and are seen as a sacred creature by Tibetan Buddhists, the predominant population of Sertar.
