KWS defends relocation of cheetah cubs

15 May 2012, 14:26

Nairobi - The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has defended its decision to transfer three orphaned cheetah cubs from the Mara Conservancy to the Nairobi Animal Orphanage.

In a statement to Capital News, KWS said it considered the condition under which the cubs were rescued and also the provisions of the Kenyan law, the national conservation and management strategy for cheetahs.

KWS went on to add that, the cubs had not learnt survival tactics in the wild since they were orphaned explaining that releasing them to the wild was likely to reduce their chance of survival.
