CCF's Cheetah Ambassdors in Training- Update

As the 'OK Cubs' get bigger and bigger they are also being exercised every other day. With their new found love of the "runway course" we have been able to track their speeds using GPS dog collars that transmit every 5 seconds. This does two great things for the staff at CCF.

1. We can keep track of their speeds and the distances they run.
2. It ensures that we can find them if they get scared and run away.

This is a win-win situation for everyone. With the tracking collars we have found that on 13 August, Senay (photo) reached speeds of 44 km/hr running 1.1 km total! So far she has become an excellent runner and we will continue to build up her strength. This is a great way for exercise and to enrich the lives of these four very unique cheetahs
