The Need for Speed 1

Some of the cheetahs at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia were brought in as very young orphans (sometimes only a few days old) and will never return to the wild. A large number however will be returned to the wild after they show an ability to successfully hunt among other things. Running is part of their daily routine.
