2015 05 25 - Manx The Amur Leopard

Luckily for Manx the amur leopard and several others, their world was blessed with Chris Lawton at the Rutland Falconry Centre http://www.rutland-falconry.com

A unique, quirky humoured man, who's love for 'his' leopards goes to his very core. So lucky that we got in on one of the 6 open days the leopards are shown a year.

Thank you so much for putting 'reflections of home ' on PP, it makes me so proud :)
Super shot.

Wow - so great that they have a proper wild environment - you can really see it in his face. Next time I'm in Oakham I'll look up the falcons.

@judithg Judith, it's amazing for the wildlife.....the leopards are on view again soon I think :) The surroundings are all about the birds, humans have to make do :)

Fabulous shot of a leopard! Not seen too often - wonder where this guy gets the money to look after them!
May 25th, 2015  
Super FAVulous!

@maggiemae All donations and entry fees. I adopted this leopard today as adoption fees also go towards their upkeep. I paid more than I had to as well as I know it will all go to the animals and not some unnecessary expense. The guy lives in a caravan on site, so he truly puts all the money to the animals

Wonderfully framed and great tones. Any idea why he is called Manx? Is he from the Isle of Man?

These beautiful leopards are critically endangered in the wild and need all support.

@colinbarber013 Hi Colin, isn't it sad they are so endangered. I sponsored Manx for a year to help Chris along the way of keeping them fed and watered
May 26th, 2015  
@spanner He's called Manx because he was born without a tail. The zoo he was born in was going to have him put down because of these 'defect' and that is when Chris started his sanctuary.......a long battle, but Manx is safe now to live a full life, sans tail

What an amazing opportunity to photograph there! I love this composition, the juxtaposition of the wild leopard peering out of a doorway. WOW -- and fav.
May 26th, 2015  
@pixiemac yes it's sad these beautiful animals have almost disappeared from the wild.
