Wednesday, Aug. 15: We are keeping our fingers crossed.

A small group of orphaned cheetah cubs, who were originally stolen from the wild, were confiscated recently in Berbera in northwest Somaliland. Two cubs subsequently died.

The surviving cub — a female — is now on her way to the Born Free Rescue Center in Ensessakotteh, Ethiopia.

Thursday, Aug. 16: She arrived! Watch a short video of her discovering her new digs, and also check her out in our photo gallery.
