剛剛看到時,眼淚都要飆出來了
好痛...看起來好痛....
好好的一隻貓咪被折磨成這樣子..
http://www.supervr.net/catbbs/topic.cgi?forum=14&topic=5868&start=0&show=0

由於圖片太驚悚,點上面的網址進去看吧!
要先做好心理建設....我怕嚇到大家..

那個虐貓的變態,你下地獄吧!
你將來會在地獄裡天天被火燒!
現世報,真的很靈驗...
來世報,一定加倍還...
你等著吧!天理昭張,報應不爽.....

 




我很想把心理那些憤恨詛咒的字眼全搬出來,
但是為那種爛人造口業,髒了我的嘴....

看到流落街頭的小貓咪,會不會動了惻隱之心帶回家呢?大陸新疆有位民眾今年五月在郊外放牧時,看到一對飢寒交迫的「小貓咪」,好心帶回家當寵物,沒想到越養越大隻,經過鑑定才發現,撿到的不是貓,而是稀有的保育類動物「雪豹」。




一手抱一隻,灰色身體上佈滿黑色斑紋,這是貓咪嗎?放到磅秤上一量,每隻竟然有15公斤,原來這是大陸稀有的保育類動物「雪豹」。家住新疆的張培偉,今年五月在峽谷放牧時,看到一對全身溼答答凍得發抖的小動物,原本以為它們是草原班貓,當下決定帶回家飼養,卻怎麼也沒想到貓咪越養越大隻,而且不吃乾糧只吃肉,覺得事情不對勁了,張培偉趕緊通報,專家鑑定結果竟是雪豹。

 

可愛貓咪變成稀有雪豹,張培偉一點也不開心,由於當地動保單位缺乏合適場地,張培偉得暫時養著,而光是雪豹姊弟的食量高的嚇人,一天要吃掉3、4隻活雞,擔心雪豹吃出病來,還得先幫活雞洗澡再餵食,怪只怪自己有眼不識雪豹,現在也只能繼續等,看哪個單位願意收容這兩隻保育類動物。(新聞來源:東森新聞)

昨天看見這則新聞『「怪獸」攻擊家犬!非貓非石虎 專家不知品種』
http://tw.news.yahoo.com/article/url/d/a/081110/17/1971n.html

引起我高度興趣,這貓我看過圖片!
這絕對不是台灣種原生貓,網路上的這張照片相當模糊,
根據模糊的照片,只能勉強判斷....

我猜可能是 Asian Golden Cat  (亞洲金貓)相似度九成以上






不過還有一種更稀有的大貓,下面這隻 Bornean Bay Cat,也有點類似唷!




純屬猜測,畢竟照片真的很模糊,真想親眼見到牠!




Asian Golden Cat 照片如下:












 Bornean Bay Cat 照片如下:






想到這裡,我覺得憂心忡忡.......

1.台灣貓科原生種只有雲豹與石虎兩種,
  雲豹早已絕跡,數十年來無發現的紀錄,
  石虎,也越來越稀少,野外數量與生活條件令人堪慮,
  要是有人走私外來貓種,又讓他逃脫或是棄養,
  造成生態的改變,不管對貓科動物或對人類,都不一件好事。
  台灣的自然環境被破壞殆盡,
  原生物種大多瀕臨危險的生存邊緣,
  還有人讓這種外來野生貓貿然的出現在台灣生態中,
  當初小小的福壽螺從國外引進時,
  造成台灣生態大浩劫的問題,不容小看!

2.萬一,他只是被抓到的唯一個案,
  如果還有其他野生貓在外流浪,真的令人憂慮.....

3.這隻大貓看起來狀況不是很好,有些瘦弱。實在感到不捨...

4.這或許是走私來的,既然花錢弄進來,應該是想營利,
  所以應該是逃脫逃走的吧?
  然後因為飢餓才到民宅偷食物吧
  如果是為營利,也許他有配偶還在走私者手中,
  或是一同逃脫了也說不定

5.外來種,要是走私來的沒有檢疫過,
  大部分野生貓科動物的國家都是狂犬病疫區,
  萬一帶有狂犬病或是不知名傳染原,造成台灣野生動物的浩劫,
  這該怎麼辦啊?實在很憂慮!




Bornean Bay Cat
Common Name: Bornean Bay Cat
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)
Class: Mammalia
Order: Carnivora
Family: Felidae
Genus: Felinae (Catopuma)
Species: badia

Misc.: No actual studies of this cat have ever been made in the wild, and it continues to be the mystery cat of the feline family. Virtually all information has been taken from museum specimens, except for in 1992 when a female was captured in a trap accidentally. It is believed she was kept in captivity for some months after capture, and was brought in to the local museum on the brink of death, and her remains were used for genetic analysis.

Size and Appearance: About the size of a housecat, the Bay Cat weighs between 5-10 pounds. It has 2 coat colors, the more common being a chestnut-red, and the other being a gray. The coat is speckled with black markings, and the backs of the rounded ears are darker in color. The tail is long and has a whitish stripe running down most of the underside of the tail, which becomes pure whiListen to Bay Catte at the tip, but black on the topside. It has a long body, and that combined with the long tail give it the appearance of the Jaguarundi.

Habitat: The Highlands, areas of rocky limestone on the edge of dense jungle. Some reports also indicate it may be found in dense primary forest and along rivers.

Distribution: Borneo only.

Reproduction and Offspring: Unknown.

Longevity unknown.

Social System and Communication: Unknown.

Hunting and Diet: Unknown.

Principal Threats: The only believed threat at this time would be loss of habitat due to human settlement and logging. Unfortunately, since virtually nothing is known about this little cat, it is difficult to determine what threatens its existence and survival.

Status: CITES: Appendix II. IUCN: Insufficiently known.

Felid TAG 2000 recommendation: Bornean bay cat (Catopuma badia). Until recently, this species was an enigma because knowledge about its origin and biology was only derived from several museum specimens. Although recently photographed in the wild, it would be highly unlikely that a viable captive population of this naturally rare felid could ever be obtained for North America.

How rare is this cat ?   The International Species Information Service lists 44 worldwide, with 5 being in the U.S.  There are 0 living on Easy Street.

Asian Golden Cat

Common Name: Asian Golden Cat, Temminck's Cat
Listen to Asian Golden CatKingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata)
Class: Mammalia
Order: Carnivora
Family: Felidae
Genus: Felinae (Catopuma)
Species: temminckii

Misc.: This cat was originally classified as 2 distinct species due to color variations. The red phase was called the "Golden" cat, while the gray phase was called the "Silver" cat. Today, they are recognized as a single species with 2 color variations. It is referred to in some areas as "the Leopard's brother" because they inhabit the same area.

Sub-species: F.t. tristis ?Sichuan and Tibet

Size and Appearance: This medium sized cat weighs between 20-32.5 pounds, stands approximately 26-33 inches tall and reaches lengths of 46-54 inches. Like their African counterpart, their coat color appears in several variations, from fox-red to golden brown, but can also be black, brown or gray. Their pattern can also vary greatly from plain to spotted, and includes, in one region, rosette and spot markings that resemble that of an Ocelot. It is this Ocelot-like from that has been given its own distinct subspecies listed above. The face of the golden cat is marked with white lines running across its cheeks, and from the corners of its eyes up to the top of its head. Its ears are dark with a grizzled center. The underside of the last third of the tail, including the tip, is white.

Habitat: Predominately found in tropical and sub-tropical moist evergreen and dry deciduous forests. Occasionally found in shrub and grassland.

Distribution: The Himalayas, China, southeastern Asia, Malaysia, Nepal and Sumatra.

Reproduction and Offspring: After a gestation of approximately 80 days, a litter of 1-3 kittens is born, with 1 being the average. Newborns weigh approximately 8.75 ounces at birth. Eyes open around 9 days and they are weaned at around 6 months. They reach sexual maturity around 18-24 months for females, and around 2 years for males.

afrgoldencat.bmp (333954 bytes)In captivity, Asian Golden Cats have lived up to 20 years, although the average is 12.

Social System and Communication: Unknown.

Hunting and Diet: The primary prey of this cat is large rodents, amphibians and insects, birds, small reptiles and small ungulates. They have also been found to prey on larger animals like wild pig, sambar deer, and young calves of domestic water buffalo.

Principal Threats: Deforestation and hunting for its pelt and bones. Livestock depredation has also been an issue.

Status: CITES: Appendix I. IUCN: Indeterminate.

asian golden catAsian golden cats have long been known in Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand as ‘fire cats’. Legend says that carrying one hair will give the bearer protection from tigers, or burning the pelt will drive tigers away from the village.

Sturdily built with fairly long legs, the Asian golden cat is a medium size cat, with fox-red to gold-brown, black, brown or grey fur. Melanistic examples are not uncommon. There is a variation, thus far reported only from China, of ocelot-like rosettes and spots, which looks so unlike the plain form that some taxonomists have considered it a separate species. The moderate length, dense coat is generally unmarked, but those cats in the more northerly regions often exhibit spots and stripes that closely resemble the markings of the leopard cat Prionailurus benagalensis. The most conspicuous features of this cat are the white lines bordered with black running across the cheeks, and from the inner corners of the eyes up to the crown. As with most cats, the underside and inner legs are white, and there is a white patch on the underside of the last part of the long tail, which is roughly 1/2 to 1/3 of the total body length. The backs of the short, rounded ears are black, with a whitish central area, and the eyes are usually greyish green or amber.

The Asian species appears to be closely related to the African golden cat Profelis aurata although the two are separated by more than 6,400 kilometers. It is thought that about one million years ago forests covered the area from Senegal to China, a region now broken by vast deserts. Over the years, the deserts probably isolated the two golden cat populations.

The Asian golden cat is a nocturnal forest dweller, preferring deciduous and tropical rainforest, and occasionally more open areas with rocky tracts. In parts of China they are known as the ‘rock cat’. They are found from Nepal and northeast India through southeast Asia, China, Thailand, Malaysia and Sumatra. Unlike the African cat however, the Asian species is considered to be more abundant throughout their range.

asian golden cat range mapAlthough they can climb well, they spend most of their time on the ground, carrying their long tail curled up at the tip. They are reported by tribesmen in Thailand to have their young in the hollow of a tree. Opportunistic hunters, they prey on a wide variety of rodents, birds, reptiles, young hares, muntjacs and water buffalo calves. They have also been known to prey on poultry, sheep and goats, and it is for this reason that the cats are actively hunted by the villagers.

After a gestation of 75 - 80 days, one to three kittens are born, weighing approximately 250 grams. Their eyes open at around nine days, and they are weaned at six months. Kittens have longer, thicker coats than the adults, but show no pattern. They are slightly darker than the adults. This attractive Asian carnivore has in the past been fairly common in European zoos, although their reproductive rate was not particularly good. Worldwide, there are less than a dozen in zoos, with only four or five females in breeding situations. There is a high incidence of females being killed by their mates, even in well established pairs. Maximum longevity has been reported at 20 years.

The Asiatic golden cat is widely reported as uncommon and threatened by deforestation. Major threats also include hunting for their pelt and bones. Their meat is considered a delicacy and the whole animal is often roasted on a spit. The bones are then sometimes ground into a powder to be given to children for fevers. Livestock predation, which usually leads to persecution, has also been reported. Although they are reported to be decreasing in India and Indonesia, no factual information is known of their status in the wild. Hunting is allowed in Laos, Bhutan and Brunei. CITES has placed them on Appendix I.
