We all know that leopards have amazing fur and many business and industries take advantage of such a breath taking creature. If a leopard ever wanders to close to a human village in the wild then it be shot because they are seen as a threat !!!Another big cause is deforestation that is happening in many rain forests and forests , if their habitats are being destroyed then the leopards will have no shelter and could suffer from illneses due to the cold. ALso if their prey is killed out then will not have any supply of food that they need to survrive !!!


Although some races and local populations are in trouble, the leopard is not yet an endangered species.
