Cheetah Sightings in Samburu

jan 15, 2018

Three cheetah cubs taken by young herding boys were reunited with their mother. Field officer Moses Kinosi and the Meibae Conservancy Rangers were fast to find the tracks of the mother where thechildren had found the cubs. After replacing the cubs the area was monitored and the mother returnedto nurse the cubs even though they had been handled by people. The following day, the mother moved the cubs about one kilometer away and could be seen for the next two days still with the cubs. It is always the objective to keep cheetahs in the wild and to discourage the community from taking cubs ACK and the Meibae Conservancy are planning to hold a series of baraza – community meetings – to instruct adults and children to leave the cubs where they are and if concerned to keep a distance while calling ACK to assist. The following day, the mother moved the cubs about one kilometer away and could be seen for the next two days still with the cubs.
