It is sad that this must be done, but maybe this will help save some our endangered leopards. Too many species are disappearing. Though it is true that the collars have not helped with wolves and some other animals quickly becoming a memory.

"The leopards are endangered today in Pakistan as large-scale developmental projects and increasing human population encroach into their territory.

About a dozen leopards were killed last year after they attacked humans and livestock.

Radio collars have also been used in the country to track leopard's more elusive cousin - the snow leopard - as well as hog deer, falcons and the houbara bustard, a large bird.

The radio collar data will help in the scientific management of the animals."

I'm not sure about this. If the collars had camera's on them that would show who the poachers are, then maybe OK, but the collars are so large and bulky. Why not set up surveillence camera's in the forest. That way you can study ALL creatures and catch any poachers?
