Whomever is collaring and tracking these cats should also be vaccinating them against plague, if there is a vaccine for it. If not, one should be made. Further, the hunting of these animals should be banned. Will the hunters die if they have one less kind of animal to kill? Their safety and allowance to thrive would reset the ecosystem.
They are not killing them for meat to eat, so why are they? So they can mount their head on a wall or have them stuffed and displayed? Why not shot them with a camera instead. They were here before man and have a right to live. All trophy hunting should be banned!!!!!!
