Dogs become cheetah’s best friends

Cheetahs and dogs live together as companions at zoos in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio; Richmond, Va., and San Diego, while the Cheetah Conservation Fund’s efforts to save cheetahs in Africa uses dogs in a different way. There, Anatolian shepherds protect African farmers’ herds from cheetahs, which in turn protects the cheetahs from being trapped or shot. Namibia’s cheetah population has grown from 2,500 to nearly 4,000 due in part to the program.
