Chester Zoo Cheetah Cub
Sadly both the female cubs have passed away this month! :(
Two of four cubs born in June, Kinza and Shendi had been receiving veterinary treatment for an illness for a few weeks. Kinza died on 1 November and Shendi died on 12 November. The siblings had been suffering from cowpox. The two males are said to be getting stronger :) (fingers crossed for them).
I grew very attached to these gorgeous animals, especially as I had been documenting them on a weekly basis. I just couldn't believe the news yesterday (25/11/11) when it was announced.
Check out the rest of the set as well, i've got loads more to come on soon.
Please comment if you like it :) Not just a flashy comment, an actual comment as well :)
