Cheetah

Cheetah
As part of the relocation from farmland process, CCF collects cheetahs trapped on farmland, performs medical workups on them, and then releases them in less human-populated areas. Some cheetahs, however, cannot survive in the wild due to injury or being orphaned at too young an age and must remain at CCF where they can be fed and cared for. (view small | med | large | orig)
