The Estonian Cheetah


Finally, a slide with a bit of information.

This slide from 1964 shows one of the few remaining (at the time) Estonian Cheetah, and her cub.

Despite the name, the Estonian Cheetah could be found in Latvia and Poland as well as the obvious colony in Estonia. Pressures from Blueberry Cultivation have affected numbers, and since 2003, there have been no confirmed sightings. :-(
