Russia: Check out this rare sighting of a roaring snow leopard

A snow leopard was sighted by scientists near Irkutsk in Russia on Tuesday.

The scientists managed to film unique shots of the snow leopard, which is an endangered animal. This predator is a nocturnal animal and it's very difficult to catch a snow leopard on camera in its natural inhabitant. These cats are usually rather restrained in their emotions but this cat roared rather loudly.

The snow leopard's population is diminishing and estimated to be around 4,5000-6,5000 big cats.
