Two young cheetahs make their debut at The Wild this weekend; Here’s a sneak peak

Their names are Po and Muh-Cozff and Jeff Taylor from the Wild Animal Park says they’re just six months old.

It’s Big Cat Week at Wild Animal Park in Chittenango and some new cheetah cubs will be on display for the first time this weekend.

On Friday we got a sneak peak of the newest additions. Their names are Po and Muh-Cozff and Jeff Taylor from the Wild Animal Park says they’re just six months old. When they are fully grown, they will be one of the fastest animals on the planet.

“These guys are fast. They go up to 70 miles per hour and they get there in three seconds,” says Taylor.

There are less than 10,000 cheetahs left in the wild. Taylor says one of the goals of the Wild Animal Park is to help educate the public about the need to protect this endangered species.

“The zoos are really important to put these animals on display for people – to see them up close, to know that we need to protect them,” says Taylor. “So our goal here is to really push the message of conservation and the need to protect them.”

The addition of the two baby cheetahs makes the Wild Animal Park one of only a dozen zoos in the country where you can see all seven big cat species. Visitors to The Wild will be able to learn more about all of the big cats during Big Cat Week.

If you want to check out the baby cheetahs their big debut is Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Big Cat Week kicks off Sunday and runs through July 8th.
