Date of Arrival

Nov 2008

Lucky the cheetah arrived at the sanctuary in November 2008 when she was around 9 months old. One of her back legs had been very badly damaged by the illegal gin trap in which she had been caught and sadly our vet had to amputate it. Lucky became an ambassador for N/a’an ku sê and the work we do when she featured alongside Marlice van Vuuren in an advert for Volkswagen Golf.
