A snow leopard had to be rescued by police after it was cornered by a group of sheep dogs and forced up a tree in Baicheng County, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.


The snow leopard, an endangered species, was found stealing sheep in a village last Saturday.


The dogs fought with the leopard before it fled out of their reach up the tree, where it stayed for a day until police came to rescue it.


The snow leopard received treatment from a vet and was later released back into the wild.


For the cats,
