A few weeks ago, the Kenyan Wildlife Service came and took another Cheetah Cub. This Cheetah Cub requires 24/7 specialized medical care. This Cheetah Cub was receiving that specialized, however after repeated plea’s to allow this cub to stay where it was (under ethical care) KWS refused and took this little cub and placed it inside of Nairobi Orphanage. This cubs name is Tumbo,
this cub was never caged. As you can see by this photograph, Tumbo has a medical condition in his legs which need specialized care which included walking long distances each day. Right now Tumbo is in a small cage and has been crying consistently since his arrival a few weeks ago. This was not made public as extensive efforts to keep him where he has lived since birth have been carried out have been ongoing, which included the need for an urgent operation on Tumbo. In the last few hours it has been confirmed that KWS will not release Tumbo, even for his operation. Money has changed hands in this situation. Its not good. Cee4life is now in the process of compiling a report on Tumbo. All support is appreciated.
