In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Abused Cheetah Cubs Rescued In Ethiopia


The Associated Press published a report last week about two abused cheetah cubs that were being held captive in a restaurant in an Ethiopian village. According to the article "the 3-month-old cubs were being forced to fight each other for the amusement of the patrons at a Gode restaurant: one cheetah was blind, possibly from the poachers who kicked the animal in the face."

  • This is very sad for us, and it is one of the reasons why we are supporting the Cheetah Conservation Fund, an organization that is making big strides toward protecting these wonderful animals.
