Sad news I'm afraid. Remember the Wild Boys, HiFi and Sam, that hang out near the Elands pen? Sam was found dead a couple of days ago. (He's the cat in the background on the photo).
We had not sighted him for a while but picked up his radio collar transmission. Staff found no evident signs of injuries or struggle, so a full necropsy was performed. No apparent cause of dead was found. Tissue has been sent out for analysis, but we won't know the results for a while.
I'm sure the female cheetahs in the Elands pen will miss him.
His brother HiFi is still around.
