Save The Cheetahs Petition
To: S.A government
http://www.petitiononline.com/cheetahs/petition.html
"When someone says big cats and endangered in the same line most people think, tigers or leopards hardly anyone ever thinks cheetahs. But they are big cats and they are endangered, and close to extinction unless people start to act now. As the cheetahs are so endangered and so ignored their current status is only likely to get worse and since they have been on the list since the 1960's this just adds to the idea things arent going to get better. Which is why not only do people need to act, but act now. There are two main reasons to explain these stunning animals going extinct is loss of habitat. The cheetahs need open plains to hunt on and they are disappearing now due to humans building or ruining the land. Also farmers or hunters cause a lot of their bad status right now. The cheetahs are not picky about what animals they eat, as long as they can fill their stomachs. Which means that every now and then they will take some livestock from farmers. And most farmers do no! t see them as hungry animals with nothing else to eat easily but as guilty, theives and they shoot them to protect their animals. There are also places in Africa where people can go on holiday hunting trips for cheetahs for fun as well as these there are the hunters themselves who shoot them for their beautiful skin or again simply for fun.
