Un nuovo cucciolo salvato!

Another cheetah cub was turned over to CCF this week. She was rescued by a farmer who found her on his farm very weak and sick. The farmer turned the cub over to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), who then let us transfer the cub to CCF headquarters for rehabilitation.

We performed a routine examination and discovered she had a problem in her abdomen. Dr. Laurie Marker and CCF’s veterinary team performed a major surgery on her yesterday and removed a mass from her stomach.

Today she is recovering well, getting lots of rest and even tried a little bit of food.


E i nostri otto Cuccioli Selvatici tra cui i 5 di Zinzi…Ecco le notizie!

Il cucciolo di ghepardo asiatico salvato dai bracconieri non ritorna in natura

Articolo del Tehran Times

TEHRAN – Il cucciolo di ghepardo asiatico che è stato sottratto ad una gang che traffica in animali a Tehran il 26 dicembre 2017 non può essere rimesso in libertà perlomeno per il momento, ha affermato il Capo veterinario Iman Memarian del Pardisan Rehabilitation Center.

Separato dalla famiglia a 4 mesi, il cucciolo chiamato Iran non ha ricevuto gli insegnamenti per la caccia della mamma, che si protraggono fino a 18 mesi di età.

“Credo che se la liberassimo in natura morirebbe”, Avrebbe affermato il veterinario mercoledì.

Il veterinario ha aggiunto che a causa delle condizioni inadeguate cui è stato sottoposto il cucciolo nei 4 mesi di cattività, Iran, il cucciolo asiatico, non è a suo agio nel nuovo ambiente in cui si trova, e sta vivendo livelli di stress molto forti, anche se la situazione sta migliorando rispetto a dieci giorni fa.

Per la sua età Iran era malnutrita quando è stata recuperata, ma ora si alimenta correttamente ed è in buone condizioni generali, ha affermato il veterinario del Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

Il ghepardo asiatico, ovvero iraniano è la specie ad alto rischio estinzione (critically endangered)che vive nelle regioni aride Centro orientali dell’Iran.


Salvare il ghepardo asiatico ? Una alternativa: L’inseminazione artificiale

Artificial insemination an option for breeding captive Asiatic cheetahs

January 10, 2018

TEHRAN – Two Asiatic cheetahs which are being kept in captivity in Tehran’s Pardisan Park may become parents using artificial insemination.

The two cheetahs called Koushki – the male cheetah – and Delbar – the female cheetah, were separated from their parents as a cub and couldn’t return back to wild as they didn’t have a parent to teach them how to survive and were kept in captivity since then.

The two cheetahs are regularly undergoing medical tests to ensure their readiness for artificial insemination, YJC quoted the chief veterinarian of Pardisan rehabilitation center Iman Memarian as saying on Tuesday.

Continuous efforts have been made so that the cheetah couple could achieve a natural conception, but unfortunately they all have failed till date, he regretted.

Memarian went on to say that German experts are lending a hand in implementing the artificial insemination techniques.

Physically and clinically healthy, Delbar and Koushki are receiving their required supplements and nutrition, he noted.

The behavior of cheetahs is being monitored 24-7 so that whenever Delbar (the female cheetah) shows stress or signs of readiness for natural breeding, veterinarians can adopt the required measures, he concluded implying that there is still hope for natural conception.

Once living in wide parts of Asia, Iranian or Asiatic cheetahs are now just inhibiting in central dry regions of Iran. As per the figures announce d by Conservation of Asiatic cheetah (CACP) only some 50 cheetahs are estimated to inhabit Iran.

Special programs have been planned for saving this species and hopes are that artificial insemination can open a new window for conserving this critically endangered animal.

La salute del cucciolo di 9 settimane confiscato in Somalia la notte di Capodanno sta peggiorando progressivamente a causa del trattamento subito, probabilmente, prima del recupero. I cuccioli di ghepardo sono noti per la loro fragilità e questo cucciolo sembra aver subito lesioni interne. I nostri associati in Somalia stanno facendo tutto il possibile, anche se a questo punto la prognosi è purtroppo riservata. International Fund for Animal Welfare – IFAW
