TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A project launched to study the behavior of Taiwan leopard cats on a stretch of highway where many have been killed by vehicles has resulted in many new sightings of the elusive feline, reported UDN.
County Highway 140 in Miaoli has seen an epidemic of deaths of leopard cats after being struck by cars. Therefore, the county government in October of last year initiated a project to identify high-risk areas in Miaoli County.
As part of the study, a professional team was commissioned to set up 13 infrared automatic cameras to monitor leopard cat behavior along County Highway 140.
Thus far, four cameras have captured the activities of leopard cats. Among the cameras include two located on the southeast side of Da’an Wetland Park. [FULL STORY]
