Who will win in this race for survival? With fewer than 12,500 individuals left in the wild, the () is in a race for it’s very existence and perhaps in the long run on the losing end of this battle.

With extremely high cub mortality rates, loss of habitat and poor defences in their interaction with other predators and with humans, the cheetah will unfortunately be one of the next major species to be in need of an intervention in the coming years.

It will be a terrible day when any animals numbers go to the brink of extinction Today 2016-05-22 announced on the radio news that in a Chilean Zoo that a shirtless man jumped into a Lion enclosure taughting them and both Lions were shot I think they should have shot the man instead. But lets hope the mauling he got will live with him and be a constant reminder of his stupidity

What a horrible day it will be when the last Cheetah in the wild is gone. We have taken away its habitat, and we have hunted these cats – shame on us! Unless we can turn this around it looks imminent that they are losing the battle for survival.
