Experts Team Up to Save Ill Persian Leopard

A team of veterinarians and environmental experts have been tasked with saving a sickly six-year-old leopard in the Mashhad Zoo, after footage of the captive animal being mistreated sparked a public outcry on social media.
"The declining health of Aras [the leopard's name] triggered an unprecedented move in the field of wildlife preservation," said Farbod Houman, a wildlife protection expert with the Department of Environment's office in Khorasan Razavi Province, where Mashhad is located.
"A specialized task force has been set up for the first time over the five-decade history of the Mashhad Zoo, which marks a new chapter in the government's campaign to provide medical care to wildlife species," he told IRNA on Tuesday.
