This is "Lole", she is one of the last few remaining Snow Leopards left on the Planet. She was rescued by local men while trying to cross the river when she was only 6 months old. Now she is an adult and is under the care of the local wildlife protection that keeps her in an enclosure outside the small village of Sost.
