The press service of the Land of the Leopard National Park announced the successful resettlement of another Far Eastern leopard to its historical habitat. A young male Leo 260M was released into the wild in the Ussuriysky Reserve.

In July last year, an emaciated motherless cub was discovered near the borders of the Leopard Land National Park. The kitten was taken to the Tiger Wild Animal Rehabilitation Center, where he received the necessary assistance and treatment. In a special enclosure, he safely regained his strength and successfully mastered the skills of hunting large prey.

A panel of experts with the participation of leading Russian zoologists decided that the male is ready to return to the wild. The Ussuri Nature Reserve was chosen as the release site. This area is part of the historical range of leopards, which disappeared there more than half a century ago. Leo 260M has already become the third leopard successfully released in the Ussuriysky Reserve.

Experts expect that in the process of implementing the reintroduction project, Leo 260M will find a mate and become the founder of a new family of leopards.
