First there were the Stars, and now there are the Scars...

CCF
CCF's newest orphans

In mid July, CCF staff received a call that a collared female cheetah was found caught in a cattle fence and had died. At the time of her death, data from her satellite collar suggested that she had a new litter of cubs. CCF staff was able to trap all four cubs, and brought them to the centre. "Mischief" had sustained an injury while in the trap cage and required sutures on the front right chest. Then his brother "Phil" sustained a shoulder injury. For this reason, these four are known affectionately as "the Scars" and, because they were orphaned so young, will live their lives at CCF.
