All keepers know how difficult  it can be to treat an injured or sick snow leopard. The team at Tama Zoo in Tokyo recently had to deal with their 4 month old cub, Suou, who had a broken leg. The challenge was not to separate him from the rest of his family at such young age as problems with later reintroduction to the familycould happen. Read Steve Tracy’s post on the Snow Leopard Trust’s Blog on how the Zoo team came up with a solution. Suou’s now well and happy.
