    1. I read again very very carefully holding a magnifying glass. And came to conclusion that you need to read my comment carefully to understand what I mean.

  1. Snow leopard belongs to the family of Cat i-e tiger and lion. It is a noble animal and considered as prince of jungle. It has its dignified principles. It kills a single animal holding by its neck and eats it after killing and then remains satiated for days. Killing several animals and tearing them apart is the tact of dog family like wolf, jackal, etc.

    1. I agree with you. But what if there are more than one snow leopard. Would they kill only one goat or any other animal. In this case I can see more than one snow leopards possibly five.
