Hidden Hill Gallery once again tried to encourage residents to learn about conservation, as they opened their gallery to the Cincinnati Zoo Cat Ambassadors on Friday, March 20. This time a five month old cheetah, Tom Tom, and his Anatolian Shepard friend, Pow Wow, who was born only a few days after the cheetah, showed how well behaved young animals can be when they feel safe.

Many visitors came to marvel at the animals, to learn about these big cats and their survival. The reproductive programs, care facilities, and adaptations of the cheetah were noted.

See the full story in next week’s Springboro Sun newspaper. Check out the rack locations on the New Rack section of this web page.
