Anything would help this little zoo, as they only have about 35 mammals (total number, not just species) and a large assortment of birds.

Interesting they have to go to South Africa (presumably DeWildt) to get it. I am sure this is because they are not AZA that they cannot get one from the U.S. There are a couple of other private, non-AZA facilities in U.S. that also bought their cheetahs from DeWildt (Cat Haven in California, Leopards Etc in California [although they just changed their name] and some private place in Florida - the one where they attacked the owner).

A trio of month-old cougars have been added to the zoo:

The Pacific Northwest zoos currently have a lot of young cats: Oregon has a young cougar and 3 baby caracals; Point Defiance has a pair of year-old tiger cubs as well as 2 baby clouded leopards; Woodland Park has a baby ocelot; and Cougar Mountain Zoo now has a trio of month-old cougars.
