"Stone Tiger" appeared in Yinchuan, broke into the manor and killed the chicken, locked in an iron cage, still very domineering

After the ecological environment has been improved, the number of wild animals has also increased, which means that there will be more related sightings. Take wild boars as an example. In the early years, due to the destruction of their habitats, they were rare even in rural areas. Now they not only appear in cities, but even reach the point of local flooding. Many places have dispatched professional farmers to protect them. Hunting teams for ecological control of wild boar populations. The contradiction between people and animals has always existed, especially some predatory beasts, occasionally going down the mountain to enter the village, stealing poultry and livestock, causing losses to people. In the past, people's awareness of animal protection was relatively weak, and in the face of wild beasts that broke into the village, they mostly took the attitude of killing or capturing them. However, with the increase in the publicity of wildlife protection in various places, relevant laws and regulations have been popularized, and more importantly, animal protection has gradually become popular in the hearts of the people. Choose to ask for help, rescue them, and release them into the wild. This is the most common practice today, advocating the harmonious coexistence of humans and wild animals. Recently, Yinchuan Changhe Police Station rescued a leopard cat in Lavender Manor.

The beast killed the chicken, but it was still fierce in the iron cage

The people of the Lavender Manor found what seemed to be unusual in their chicken coop When I got closer, I saw that there was a "wild cat" inside, and it killed poultry. For the safety of their own livestock and poultry, people ended up keeping the "wild cat" in an iron cage. After a closer look, this animal looks like a cat, but it is not the same as an ordinary wild cat, and it is more ferocious. Even if he was locked in the iron cage, he still showed his arrogance. If he saw someone approaching, he would immediately bared his teeth and showed a fierce expression, just like a little tiger. People realized that this "wild cat" with a different appearance was most likely a state-protected animal and did not dare to dispose of it on their own, so they contacted the Changhe Police Station and asked them for help. After the staff arrived, they found that the beast was likely to be a national second-class protected leopard cat. After preliminary observation on the scene, it was found that the "wild cat" was only locked up by people. Facing the onlookers, he appeared to be rather frightened and nervous. There was no physical injury, and his mental state was also good, so he took him to the Forest Branch of the Yinchuan Public Security Bureau. According to experts, this "wild cat" is indeed a wild leopard cat.

Like a cat and a little leopard, commonly known as "Stone Tiger"

The leopard cat is similar in size to a domestic cat, but it is more slender, with longer limbs and a head. Smaller, the entire body structure is much more flexible than a domestic cat. It looks like a domestic cat and a little leopard, with spots on its body. It is also called "money cat" because it looks like an ancient Chinese copper coin. Because of its ferocious character, it is like a small tiger. In some areas such as Guangdong, the leopard cat is also called "Stone Tiger". There are 13 species of wild cats in my country, among which the leopard cat is the most widely distributed and the most numerous, and has their habitats in most areas of the south and north. Leopard cats in different environments have different coat colors. The northern population is grayish, and the southern population is mostly light yellow or light brown. Most of the small cats look alike, such as leopard cats and tiger cats, but it is often unclear because these two animals are so similar. The biggest difference between the leopard cat and the tiger cat is on the forehead. The leopard cat has two black stripes extending from the inner corner of the eye to the base of the ear. There are several thin longitudinal stripes in the middle of the two black stripes, while the corresponding part of the tiger cat is some vertical small stripes. spot. But what you need to know is that all members of the genus Tigercat live in Latin America. There is no tiger cat in our country. If you see a tiger cat in the wild in our country and don’t know whether it is a tiger cat or a leopard cat, then it must be a leopard cat.

Love to steal chickens and eat, and is also the nemesis of mice

The leopard cat mainly inhabits the mountains, shrubs and other environments, and the upper limit of distribution is 3000 meters above sea level. It is nocturnal, and generally hides in caves to rest during the day, and comes out for activities in the evening. Leopard cats have the title of "catching chickens and tigers", mainly because some leopard cats living near Linyuan villages sneak into the villages at night to steal poultry. They are quick-witted, quick-moving, and appear at night, making it difficult for people to spot and catch them. However, because the "weasel stealing chicken" is so famous in our country, in many places, even if it was done by the leopard cat, people who don't know the truth will put the blame on the weasel, which took the blame for the leopard cat. Although leopard cats love to eat chicken, their real staple food is all kinds of "mice". Wild leopard cats like to be active in places near water such as ponds, creeks, lakes, etc., because these places are often places where various small animals often haunt. Leopard cats are good at climbing trees and can swim. They can climb trees and dig eggs to prey on resting birds. They can also go into the water to fish for shrimps, and occasionally eat insects. Mice, squirrels, flying squirrels and other rodents occupy the vast majority of the diet of leopard cats. They are the nemesis of mice and agricultural beasts. People's attitude towards leopard cats is also love and hate. Love is because they eat mice, which is beneficial to agricultural production and indirectly protects crops. Hate is because they are used to stealing chickens to eat, which brings direct losses to farmers. The leopard cat was widely distributed in my country and had a large population. Take the 1960s and 1970s as an example, the country can receive 200,000 to 250,000 leopard cat fur every year. However, since the 1970s, due to severe hunting and habitat destruction, the number of leopard cats has also dropped sharply, so that for a long time, it is difficult to see them in many areas in the south. Fortunately, in recent years, sightings related to leopard cats have been reported in various places, indicating that their numbers are gradually recovering.
