NEWSLINK/PHOTOS: Amur leopards suspected of attacking rare horses on farm
A farm breeding a number of rare horses has been at the centre of alleged attacks from an Amur leopard.
Novonikolsk stud farm is the only one in the Far East that breeds Vladimir heavy draft horses, and is also home to yaks, Siberian stags, spotted deer and Hereford cows.
Over the space of three days, the big cat is said to have killed two foals and is suspected of also taking a yak calf missing from the field. There are fears that some of the stags and deer may also have become victims, although it is difficult to determine.
