25 Jan Young Male Cheetah Relocated to Samara Game Reserve
On the 16th of January, a young male cheetah was captured and relocated to Samara Game Reserve.
Expert cheetah veterinarian, Dr. Peter Caldwell from Old Chapel Veterinary Clinic, afforded vet students from Australia the opportunity to assist during the procedure. An absolutely amazing experience for these future vets.
Vincent Van Der Merwe, who heads the cheetah meta-population programme at Endangered Wildlife Trust, collected the sub-adult from Welgevonden and has since transported the cheetah to its new home where it will contribute towards the population’s genetic diversity.
