Cheetahs raised in the UK released into South African wild | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Cheetahs raised in the UK released into South African wild | ITV News” – below is their description.

We hear them before we see them. The commotion was an attempted kill, but the prey escaped.

When we found him Nairo was lying down panting heavily. Roughly eight out of ten cheetah hunts end in failure.

But the fact he and his brother Saba had tried to make a kill at all, was further proof that cheetahs born and reared in captivity can be successfully introduced to the wild.
