PHOTOS: Full Speed Cheetahs at Animal Ark Sanctuary

The Animal Ark Cheetah 500 offers guests the opportunity to see the sanctuary’s two cheetahs running at full speed and off leash. It was hosted Sunday, May 28 at the wildlife sanctuary.

The event kicked off with a short educational session about cheetahs. Rachel Smith, an animal keeper and educator, talked about the sanctuary’s cheetahs. She first explained that while most big cats will fight to defend their food, cheetahs, with their light frame, will run from a threat. A rake smacking the ground or loud stomp could be all it takes to stop a cheetah from misbehaving.
