Interestingly, Pietersen had announced the news of his new adoption a week ago on the social media. He had expressed his concerns over the reckless killing of the leopards in India. He had cited that as many as 40 leopards have been killed in the month of January in India. A large portion of these killed leopards was by the actions of the poachers.
“I’ve adopted this little orphaned Leopard in Raipur, India. The opportunity came up a couple weeks ago & when I saw 40 leopards were killed in Jan in India & 1/3 by poachers, I decided to try and help. I’m visiting India next week to meet him! Guess what I’ve called him?” KP had posted earlier.
