Rare snow leopard captured on camera for first time in 5 years Updated: 2021-07-23 07:38:41 KST

It's a rare scene captured for the first time in five years.
Shy and elusive by nature, a snow leopard, often called "ghosts of the mountains", was spotted in its natural habitat, roaming around the terrain,and sniffing the camera.
The video footage was released by the Russian branch of the World Wide Fund for Nature and came from automatic cameras installed in remote mountains in eastern Kazakhstan.
The animals inhabit high alpine areas.
Estimates by WWF Asia say, only about 100 snow leopards remain in Kazakhstan due to poaching and overgrazing.
