Title Rare Animals and their Protection in the USSR Type Miscellaneous
Year 1978 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 4-4
Keywords Uzbekistan; categories of threat; rare species; snow leopard; distribution; threats.; 8030; Russian
Abstract It described categories of threat (Category A and Category B). Snow leopard was assessed under Category A the species whose numbers and habitats have sharply diminished and are continuing to diminish as a consequence of direct persecution, destruction of their habitat or other causes. The snow leopard (Pardus uncia) inhabits the mountains of the Tien Shan range, Tarbagatai, Saur, Altai and the Sayans. Exploitation of mountain areas and depletion of stocks of wild ungulates (Siberian mountain goats and wild sheep) have led to a sharp reduction in the number of snow leopards. It is estimated that today only about one thousand leopards are left, and they have accordingly been placed under complete protection. Hunting and selective shooting are everywhere prohibited. Catching leopards is regulated by the articles of the international convention restricting trade in rare species of plants and animals.

Title Mammals Type Miscellaneous
Year 1969 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 19-27
Keywords Ussr; endangered species; snow leopard; distribution; fluctuation; threats.; 6490; Russian
Abstract It provides a list and discusses a status of rare and endangered predators and ungulates in the USSR (24 species in total). Snow leopard inhabits the mountain ridges of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, in the Altai and Tuva. The habitat of snow leopard had not changed significantly since recently, though its population had been reducing (according to materials of the year 1967). Such reduction of its population is because of the common assumption of its harmfulness and high demand for its fur-skin and high prices that zoos would readily pay for the animals.
