Is this the most adorable little bruzzy in the world? 🥰 Photo and caption below by @ccfcheetah #nature Thanks to @four_paws_international for their continuing support of CCF's efforts to care for the cheetah cubs caught up in the illegal pet trade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, when Harry and Shakir were just young cubs, they were confiscated from poachers in Somaliland 🐆. The cubs were being smuggled out of the country to be sold into the illegal, lucrative and cruel pet trade. The Cheetah Conservation Fund rescued the cubs and brought them to the CCF cheetah safe house to receive immediate care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Harry, who is a few months older than Shakir, was very afraid when rescued. With a rope around his neck and very skinny, Harry needed intensive care and hand feeding until he was strong enough to be able to eat on his own. The other cub, Shakir, was also very underweight and suffering from malnutrition, but soon, with proper nutrition, he was able to gain weight 🐾. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Both the cubs became very bonded together, and now after much care are both healthy and thriving, and they now share an enclosure at the CCF safe house. Harry and Shakir are the lucky ones. Every year it is estimated that around 300 cheetahs are smuggled out of Somaliland, mainly are very young cubs, and sadly, most of these cubs do not survive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are supporting the CCF in the care of the cubs rescued from this trade, can you help us provide much-needed care 💞 and medicine 💉 for these wild cats? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ © Matt Suiche / Cheetah Conservation Fund © Angela Ionica / Cheetah Conservation Fund Via @nature
