Thank you all your support. The environmental evaluation committee had temporally rejected the request from the Miaoli Goverment to develop the habitat of the Joho in SanYi, Miaoli, on April 16th. Please keep following this animal welfare issue until a new proposal is provided protect the rights of wildlife.
Fewer than 500 leopard cats (P. bengalensis) are living in Miaoli, a county located in mid-Taiwan. These leopard cats could become extinct because the Miaoli government plans to cooperate with Yulong Vehicle Company, FuLuSo Funeral Service company and other powerful profit-making entities to develop an area that originally belonged to leopard cats. The companies have started engineering work even though an environmental evaluation has yet to be fully completed. Nobody should tolerate these activities, but they just want to do it. Please help us to spread this news and make it possible for leopard cats to live safely in the wild. We appreciate your caring.
ps. In Taiwanese, the leopard cat is named "Joho" which means "Rock Tiger" or so.

Please do not let the remaining 500 Taiwan leopard cats disappear. Please stop the industrial development in this area (Miaoli, Taiwan).
