Numberwise, India stands at 4th nation to have high numbers of snow leopard. 

Snow Leopad faces many issues, including shortage of preys. In mean days when the Snow Leopards find no natural preys, they come down to villages and prey on livestock /cattle and this lead to conflict between man and this species and ultimate to killing of the Snow Leopards by humans. Mostly, leopards those that come down to villages and prey on livestocks are either young leopards or aged who can not go after agile natural preys like Ibex, Blue-sheep, Urial or other wild animals in its habitats.
