Littering In The Park: Cheetah Cub Chokes On Canvas Bag !

On a recent trip to Tsavo East, what seemed like a perfectly rewarding day photographing a Cheetah and her Cub that I have been monitoring for 6 months now (Malkia and Binti) almost turned into tragedy for this beautiful endangered animal.

This story is far more than ironic that this animal was saved.

A timely reminder to those who thoughtlessly litter and forget that some litter has the potential to snuff out a life. Luckily this Cheetah survived but how many animals die needlessly because of litter (not to mention trash in landfills).

That's why I don't go to the Kenyan parks, not the best class of tourist.

So many human beings don't show any respect for Mother Earth. What a shame. Thank God that cheetah survived.

That is why this world is going to crap, because of so many people not caring for anyone or anything but themselves!

Here we are in the year 2014 and still when I'm out, I see all sorts of trash everywhere. These litter bugs are disgusting. Thanks Cher

Noted. Thanks Cher.
This Cheetah had a close call, just because of someone's stupidity of throwing out trash , which is disgusting..

A game farm, Chaz? Aren't those the farms where the animals are hunted any way?

It is really sad when a park like this has animals that are suffering because of human trash. There is no excuse for it.
