Four out, four in

On the same day that four formerly captive cheetahs were soft-released into CCF's game park to determine if they can learn to hunt, CCF took possession of four 2-month-old cubs. The cubs arrived in a beat-up cage; they were filthy and terrified. Cubs that young still need intensive care, and these quickly blossomed at CCF. They are now healthy and getting more confident every day.  Luckily the four females who were soft-released have proven to be very adept at hunting and won't have to be returned to captivity at CCF. And while these four new cubs are incredibly cute, we'd prefer they were still out in the wild with their mother. CCF now has almost 60 cheetahs in its care, and we are very grateful for everyone's support.
