Tonight another adult Javan Leopard (Panthera pardus melas) was rescued by the KSDA Region 3 Ciamis in West Java, and evacuated by the Cikananga Rescue Team. As we speak, it is comfortably in the back of the black Kijang pick-up truck, on its way from Ciamis to the Cikananga Wildlife Rescue Center near Sukabumi; a 7 hour drive fortunately in the coolness of the night. The conflict Leopard was caught by the KSDA of Ciamis District in the village of Ciomas near northern part of the the Sawal Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary. Thanks KSDA for rescuing this leopard from a certain death. PPSC will do its best to find a suitable release sight!
