Pallas Cat Update Sept 26 2015

On 13 September, Dan and Honey Jones and I sighted a Pallas’ cat south of Flower Lake in the Ruoergai Grasslands, Sichuan, China. This was my first sighting of this cat in the area for three years!!! This location is just a few hundred meters away from where I sighted the Chinese Mountain cat in autumn last year.

The Pallas’ cat was sitting on a high pile of stones at a disused quarry site. We scoped from around 300 m and watched for around 5 minutes. It was very wary, observing passing motorbikes, and finally disappeared when we got within 200 m of the site.

This Pallas’ cat was photographed in Khosh Yeylagh, one of the oldest reserves in Iran, after more than 10 years since the last observation. The cat was accompanied by a cub.
Khosh Yeylagh reserve is located in the east of the Alborz Mountains in northern Iran.
