The past two days we’ve ran the cheetahs. This means that we take a cheetah in the back of a closed truck and pull a string attached to a lure up to the back of the truck to get the cheetah to chase it. When the lure is released the cheetah is let out and it runs to the other end of the dry lot. The fastest cheetah on record ran 65 mph. Bullet was running about 40 mph in 4.5 seconds. He didn’t have enough distance to get any faster. And since he lives in captivity he doesn’t run as fast and isn’t as fit since he doesn’t have to hunt for his own food.
