Captured Cheetah on Farm in Namibia.
These animals are shot by the farmers, so volunteers help with tracking, darting and collaring any Cheetal, so that their whereabouts are known.
At the same time the animal is given a check over healthwise. One which was captured had escaped from a snare and the damage done was devastating to see. Wounds were all attended to. After-which they are all taken to a safer place to be released.
I spent two weeks working with the Cheetahs on a farm in Namibia.
