How are humans effecting snow leopards?
Humans are effecting snow leopards because they are hunting them for their beautiful coat and it's a shame because there are only around 4,000 left in the wild there used to be around 8,500
because they hate snow leopards and think the snow leopard is going to kill them.:< The above answer is inaccurate. There has never been a documented attack on humans. Snow leopards do, however, prey on livestock, so the encroachment of humans and domestic animals into SL territory provides opportunities for SL to hunt those animals. Snow leopard fur is very beautiful and warm, so it has been hunted for its pelt.
