There was a restaurant owner in Ethiopia who had two 3 month old Cheetah cubs that he was using for "entertainment" by having his 3 and 4 year old children drag them around by their tails, poking and hitting them, and prodding them to fight one another. 2 U.S. soldiers saw this and are trying to secure their release to an animal reservation. One of the cheetah clubs is blind because someone kicked it in its face.
The photo from this story is the most heartbreaking you will ever see. This is the kind of story that convinces me of the inate evil in some humans. To call a person an animal who treats another human badly is a misnomer and an injustice to animals because only humans could treat fellow innocent creatures like this.
It is a credit to our American troops that they had the humanity and compassion to try and rescue these poor cubs from a certain death.
If you wish to learn more on this gut wrenching story, please go the the Cheetah Conservation Funds site at www.cheetah.org
