Infrared camera traps set up months ago by World Wildlife Fund-India caught the adult snow leopards in Kargil district just a few miles (kilometers) from the heavily militarized Line of Control between India and Pakistan.
WWF-India says it the second snow leopard photo sighting in Kargil. One was photographed hunting Asiatic Ibex in 2009.
Snow leopards are considered the most endangered of big cats thanks to poaching and habitat loss. It is believed there are between 4,000 and 6,500 left in the wild in Afghanistan, Bhutan, Siberia, Mongolia, Pakistan and India
