Lilongwe Wildlife Centre recently had a visit from a man concerned that there were dangerous leopards at his farm. Rather than kill them as many might have done, he chose to walk miles to the Wildlife Centre to see if they could be rescued.
Our animal care team decided that actually they were living quite happily in the wild in their chosen home and rather than risk relocation, we felt that education was the way forward. The man and his family now understand that these are serval cats, not leopards, and that they have nothing to fear. In fact, after time spent with our animal carers, the family are rather proud of their newly discovered residents. We have checked up on them every couple of days since the discovery and will continue to keep in touch to ensure their safety.
