    Sad to see this video.

    We should give maximum punishment for persons who killed this leopard. Rs 5000 - 25,000 fine is not enough :(
    But that will happen I guess.....

    What a magnificent creator, brutally killed by these greedy thugs!
    Why does the video hide the faces of the criminals? I live in Singapore, and here they publish the photos of criminals and even people who have committed petty crimes. Sri Lanka should adapt a practice of publishing the photos of these crooks so that the whole world knows who they are - this will definitely be a deterrant for crimes as such.

    How bad these people ?

    what a sad ending to this beautiful animal. Crooks should be punished to the maximum so the pochers will learn a lesson from this.

    Government start to implement maximum punishments to these kind of activities. We should be a good example for the world on protecting nature at the best.
