They could have gotten photos sooner.
If they need a westerner that can track they can always call, and make an offer. Or they can wait fifty years until one will pose for them!

Cool cat, I hope it can survive, taking a photo of it makes me nervous because its becoming more visible through media to the public and poachers

Those Chinese killing machines must be preparing the seasoning for this poor animal.

Photography should become the 'trophy hunt' of the future, with kill hunting of animals we don't eat banned. Great pics of the leopard! Hope the species gets a chance to recover a population.
