Washington D.C., July 9. 2014 -- In celebration of the World Cup, Born Free USA and the Born Free Foundation released a video today on YouTube featuring nine rescued cheetah cubs playing soccer with their newly acquired Boomer Balls (donated by Wolters Kluwer). Filmed at Born Free’s Ensessakoteh Wildlife Rescue, Conservation and Education Centre in Ethiopia, the game allows the cheetah residents the opportunity to stretch their legs, learn some essential survival skills, and have fun.
The ‘Cheetah World Cup’ has been a real success. The rescued cheetahs at Born Free’s Ensessakoteh Wildlife Center loved the game and it was a great opportunity for exercise. All of the cheetahs were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. “Young cubs are stolen from the wild by criminals, and then pass through the hands of dealers, often on the way to the Middle East to become exotic pets on a chain,” says Adam Roberts, CEO of Born Free USA and the acting CEO of the Born Free Foundation. “These rescued cheetahs are the lucky ones.”
