Wow, amazing. No photos I guess. Maybe they can keep the population of wild dogs and pigs in check.

OK, OK! Free dinner in Prime Bar & Restaurant as soon as it opens this month for a reasonably good photo of a Lamma Leopard Cat!

How's that for a really attractive price?

The prize is still available, lunch or dinner in Prime Bar & Grill for a verified picture of a real Lamma Leopard Cat.
Not just an overgrown tabby, please!

Predators have to live on something.

If there was a leopard of any size here, I think the cat and dog owners would be aware of it pretty quickly.
Could be an alternative to TNR.

& again today... from about 30 mtrs in open land at about 09:00 - no camera... I don't see why cat & dog owners need to be especially worried... plenty of food around the rubbish bins, although normal diet as rats, mice, birds, lizards.. etc

This page has some interesting information (I've never seen one)

http://chitchat.hk/get-your-purrs-right ... or-strays/

It seems they are similar in size and general appearance to some domestic cats, with the distinguishing marks the black lines between the eyes and ears and the spots on the body.

Would say half again larger than the average well kept domestic cat, & twice the size of the average lamma feral cat. Longer hair than most cats, but not persian length, dark spotted/dappled colouring, & a banded tail... not close enough to see facial markings clearly. but seems generally dark
