Cheetah Cubs Ready To Debut And Now You Can See Behind The Scenes; Lawmakers Earmark Projects Near Their Houses

ZOO—Tomorrow is the day the two cheetah cubs make their public debut after being hand-reared by keepers since their mother showed no interest in looking after them. Also, on August 17th there will be an evening with the vets and zoo keepers who have taken care of them since their dramatic entry into the world until now. Tickets cost $20.

If you really have a thing for cheetahs you can get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Cheetah Conservation Station for $90 per ticket through the end of September. One hundred percent of the money goes to rehab the facilities for the cheetahs. There are a limited number of tickets and tours available and this event is sure to sell out so hurry and get yours.
