How can I get to play with a cheetah cub?

Answer by Rory Young:

There are many places that breed cheetahs in captivity in Africa, especially Southern Africa and many of these promote "walking with cheetahs" and other big cats such as lions and leopards. They also allow people to go "handle" cubs.

However!!! Many of these places are raising these animals for "canned hunting"
Some claim to be reintroducing them to the wild when they reach adulthood but, as an example, I have to date failed to verify that a single successful reintroduction from two of these outfits that I have been looking into.

Unfortunately playing with baby cheetahs makes big bucks for some but does not benefit the animals or species.
