The body of the rare white leopard was discovered in the village of Mohammad Ali Faqeer, falling within the jurisdiction of taluka Thano Bola Khan. Deputy Conservator Shaikh confirmed the unprecedented nature of the incident, highlighting that a white leopard had never been sighted in Kerthar National Park before.

He speculated that the leopard might have migrated from Balochistan, as the last recorded sighting of a leopard in the area dates back to 1976.

After obtaining necessary permissions, preservation procedures will be initiated by the department.
