BECAUSE THEY ARE DIEING Also, Clouded leopards are endangered because there skins are wanted by the black market. So illegal hunters go out and kill them for the furs. On rare terms there meat also. There ae also those exotic animal collecters that would LOVE a clouded Leopard for there collection. So they pay people in the Black market or willign to do it to go and smuggle the animal. The Leopard edvenually dies if its not turned into a coat, rub, or wall piece.
