Second Chance for Cheetah
The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) needs quite a large area in which to hunt successfully. Unfortunately due to competition with other large predators in a relatively small area it does not do well in game reserves. Declining populations of cheetah in Africa have led many to set up cheetah rehabilitation centers to help injured or otherwise struggling cheetahs like the adult male pictured here.
