All cheetahs share the same DNA. They were descended from ONE pregnant female. This means they're extremely vulnerable to disease as well as poaching and habitat loss.

This absolutely boils my blood. don't know what they've got for law over there, but it's obviously not protecting the big cats or any other species of wildlife. Not only that, but I wonder if there are connections to the Black Market that the law looks the other way on. This is just despicable. There really is no excuse for any animal going extinct, but if they do, it's BECAUSE OF PEOPLE--the usual reason animals suffer. DAMN, I wish something could be done about this, but who's going to lift a finger?

The way we are going, all animals and probably most people will be extinct by then. All the problems started during the industrial age in the 1940's. That's when we started to expand and poison all the water, land and air. It took us 70 to destroy the earth this much, it'll only take a few more years to finish it off.

Believe in humankind, and the organizations that are looking out for these animals.

No animal is safe from humans and what we're doing to the planet.

I'm sure that the Almighty will not allow this to happen.
