Portrait of a Cheetah
The struggle between large carnivores and farmers is real in all Africa. While in Kenya it often ends up in a tragedy (for the animals), in Namibia often it is converted in a touristic attraction. Instead of killing of cheetahs that are threatening the hers, Namibian farmers are domesticating them, letting travelers have a close up encounter with them.
Better off dead than domesticated for these majestic animals? Or this could raise awareness on their conditions?
