The future for the snow leopard hangs in the balance -- and time is running out to save them. Illegal hunting continues to ravage snow leopards as poachers kill these cats for their fur, bones and other body parts. And climate change, habitat loss and scarce prey are pushing these great cats closer to extinction every day.
