Cheetahs heading towards extinction as population crashes

Cheetahs heading towards extinction as population crashes

By Matt McGrath
Environment correspondent


27 minutes





The sleek, speedy cheetah is rapidly heading towards extinction according to a new study into declining numbers.

The report estimates that there are just 7,100 of the world's fastest mammals now left in the wild.

Cheetahs are in trouble because they range far beyond protected areas and are coming increasingly into conflict with humans.

The authors are calling for an urgent re-categorisation of the species from vulnerable to endangered.

5. Cheetos can achieve speeds of up to 75 miles per hour, too!

After someone lets them out of their bag, probably!



Trapped by a mob of predatory Cheetos. Oh, death, where is thy sting?
