Update from Namibia

We just had some sad news, one of the female cheetahs that had a satellite collar on for the past year was found dead in a fence– very strange -- she was caught around her waist – and she has four cubs, so we picked her up a few days ago and went down today to set a trap to try to catch the cubs, estimated at around 4 months' old. The four cubs are almost all caught. As of yesterday, we had three in a box and the fourth in the cage which has not triggered, as Kate and Gail await the final catch. So this is good news. We hope that the final cub will be caught shortly so they can come back home.

And Leia has been eating and maybe doing much better.

All the best,

Laurie
