The video grab taken on Sept. 1, 2017 shows three snow leopard cubs inside a small cave in Shiqu County of southwest China's Sichuan Province. On Friday, a villager in Aoyi Village, Shiqu County saw a dead bharal when pasturing cattle and found three snow leopard cubs of three to four months old in a cave not far from the bharal's body. A forest ranger was dispatched to film the leopards in the afternoon. The area belongs to a provincial nature reserve, a main habitat for snow leopards. Infrared cameras have captured snow leopards for more than 20 times since 2013. (Xinhua)
