Adorable Cheetah Cub (Video)

 

Savanna is a super cute 3-week-old African Cheetah cub. Unfortunately, her mom Lucy is inexperienced at caregiving, so she’s being cared for in the Cincinnati Zoo’s nursery. While Savanna is getting back on pace developmentally, she’s being bottle fed every 2.5 hours. Watch feeding time with this adorable little cub!

Cheetahs need to be protected. There is no safe place left for them in the wild. They cannot compete with lions and leopards (who kill their babies), and humans are increasingly killing them with guns, or by snares. They are accused of predation upon small livestock, mostly goats. A simple solution is dogs. A cheetah will flee from a dog, a lion or leopard will not. Also, cheetahs have a 3-step method of hunting: *chase, *trip, *bite. Anything that interrupts this sequence stops the hunt. A donkey will hold its ground against a cheetah. Sheep and goats will gather around the donkey instead of fleeing, thus interrupting this critical sequence. Many kills attributed to cheetahs are actually the work of lone lions or leopards. Cheetahs are sweet and endangered. We must do everything we can to save them. Zoos and sanctuaries may be their last hope.

Life in a zoo is not fair. In a natural habitat, mothers feed their young properly. Question: Why do they have to be in a zoo? Answer: To entertain humans.
Return the animals to their natural habitats. Let them live in peace!
