    Really, Thanks to all those people who saved this animal.

    what a beauty Wednesday, 27 May 2020 09:56 AM

    Our Wildlife Department isn't praised nearly enough for their thankless job. Wish they get more support. Good job in rescuing this rare beauty. Fyi Panther is either a jaguar or leopard with a black coat (in this case a leopard as jaguars are native only to the Americas) Calling it a black panther is redundant. Black panther is the name of the marvel super hero and race movement of the late 20th century.

    Magnificent job by the rescuers. They look very proud of the job done and I am sure they deserve a reward. Pl. publish details of any Reward Fund so that we can encourage same enthusiasm in their future rescue efforts.

    Estate Tamils will not spare a single Lepord in upcountry. They hate the Lepords who roam Sri Pada mountain range.

    Such a beautiful specimen. We seem to be getting many examples from this area, Why? There should be huge jail terms for the killing of animals Elephants - 15 years Leopards - 10 years and so on. No political inference. If there is, it should be directed to the politician as well for encouraging this type of activity. The snare may have been set for another
