Abused Ethiopian cheetah cubs get expert help

In November 2005, Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) representatives were able to coordinate a group of Ethiopian officials and concerned individuals helped by representatives in the US Embassy in Addis, the US military unit, and the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme to rescue two cheetah cubs in south eastern Ethiopia and transport the cubs from Gode to Addis Ababa.

CCF was asked to find the funding to assist in the building of a new facility to house these two cheetah cubs as well as to support their long-term annual care, including food and veterinary care. It was then decided that CCF needed to assess the situation and see what could be done to assist and facilitate this process.

By the end of May 2006, with the support of the Born Free Foundation, a trip was planned for the 15-19th of June. A full report has now been posted on [CCF’s] web site )
