VIDEO: Pirouz; Iranian cheetah cub

TEHRAN, Oct. 11 (MNA) – After the deaths of two of the three Asian cheetah cubs born in Iran, the third brother, named Pirouz or Victorious, is now 6 months previous, and lives in Pardisan Wildlife Park in the capital, Tehran.

The mother of the litter, named Iran, gave birth to the three cubs in the Touran Wildlife Refuge on May 1 in the first birth of its kind in captivity.

The first cub died apparently from “congenital malformation of the left lung” and the second offspring died two weeks later.

Officers took further measures and positioned the third cub in intensive care to forestall a repeat of the earlier two experiments.
