Cheetah Cub Rejected By Mother Is Saved

Staff members at the Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon were able to save the life of this cheetah cub when he was rejected by his mother at birth. When the mother failed to clean off the birth sack, the cheetah keepers had to step in to save the cub from suffocating. After time in an incubator, the cub is being raised by the staff and so far is healthy and thriving.
 Cheetahs are an endangered species due to loss of habitat, poaching and hunting by livestock owners protecting their herds. This cub is the 174th cheetah born at the Wildlife Safari, one of the most prolific breeders of cheetahs in the United States. Via Zooborns.
