Xena / Longleat


An abandoned Cheetah cub is being hand reared by her keeper at Longleat. The female cub has been nicknamed Xena, after the warrior princess, which also marks her battling qualities. Xena spent her first ten days being cared for by her mum, Wilma. However, keepers discovered the tiny cub was cold, weak and alone on 19 April. Despite numerous unsuccessful attempts to get mother and baby back together, the decision was taken by keepers to remove the cub and rear her by hand — via Youtube
