Lower Sabie - Leopard
During Feb'14 visit I enjoyed this wonderful leopard between Lower Sabie gate entrance and S82. I only discovered today, via another social network, that this was the snared leopard everyone was so concerned about in 2013. After a relook at all my photos, I saw the snare mark/injury.

Is he/she still alive? Does he/she has a name?
Just curious to know and for the benefit of sharing this info with all on this topic.

KSD we saw him in March 2014.

Not as nice a sighting as yours, but he seemed to be doing okay.
