Yesterday, the Somaliland Ministry of Environment and Rural Development took possession of 12 cubs confiscated from a boat off the Somaliland coast. The cubs were intercepted by the military and recovered in plastic hampers in extremely poor condition. We do not know how long they went without food or water, but four died shortly after being confiscated. CCF has received and conducted intake exams on the eight survivors. They’re only about 2 months old, very weak, and their prognosis is not good. We are doing everything we can to help these tiny, emaciated cubs get stronger. Please help CCF stop the illegal pet trade by spreading the word – cheetahs are not pets!
