George Schaller: For example, snow leopards live in open country.  They can see you two miles away and hide.  All right.  My most wonderful encounters are when they accepted me.  And I see them.  They’re not running way.  I watch them awhile.  It’s dusk.  I sleep right near them because they have a kill nearby and so they don’t run away.  Well, to really feel that an animal accepts you, it’s one of the most satisfying things for somebody like myself.
