EPISODE DESCRIPTION

In a recent New York times article one could read: "This spring, the Copenhagen Zoo put down, by lethal injection, two leopard cubs, about 2 years old, whose genes were already overrepresented in the collective zoo population. Leopards are considered near threatened by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. But as part of a breeding plan to maintain the genetic diversity of this species, the cubs’ fate was determined before they were born."

WILD TIME's Thomas Janak spoke with cat rescuer/lover Lucy Snowleopard about this case and the uncertain future of these big cats.
