A man was noticed walking a leopard on a leash in Kyiv downtown on November 15. UAnimals animal protection organization stated it on its Facebook.
“Street walkers noticed a man who walked a leopard in Kyiv. This species cannot and should not be a pet. Moreover, leopards are dangerous animals and such “walks” pose a threat to both leopards and passers-by,” the organization wrote.
A man with a leopard was spotted near Ukraine’s oldest botanical gardens, at the intersection of Nazarivska and Tolstoy streets.
Animal protection organization asks to give all the possible information on the animal or the man.
As reported before, in December 2018, a leopard killed 35-year-old Buddhist monk Rahul Walke in the Indian state of Maharashtra. The man was meditating a man in the Todoba forest, which is a protected tiger reserve. The monk was fatally injured. Two other devotees meditating with him at the time escaped unscathed to alert the police, as NDTV reported.
