there being several notices at the park gates and
regular articles highlighting the dangers of throwing
rubbish in the park, some people still ignorantly throw
out the trash without realizing the deadly consequences
it has to wildlife.
for those of you who are guilty of this behavior,
thinking it is ok to do so because “its only a bottle
cap or just a plastic bag”, this story is for you !
Cheetah Cub found a discarded canvas bag hidden in the
grass while walking with mom and curiously picked it up.
with its new find, the bag quickly became a play toy and
after having its share of fun for about ten minutes,
when the time came to move on and let go of the bag, the
strings became caught in its teeth.
a desperate attempt to shake the bag loose, the canvas
bag got tangled around the cubs throat turning the
vigorously shaking to free itself, the cub luckily
managed to get loose from the bags deadly grip.
Malkia and Binti walked away, I later went to collect
the canvas bag to prevent further incidents.
