the animal kingdom is banding together…dogs and cheetahs run wild at the zoo

My first thought was how many dogs did they have to go through before this worked out.  That being said, I always expect animals to want to eat everything in sight which obviously is not the case.  Maybe I should stop watching all those animal attacks videos.  It’s skewing my view.

When you look into the cheetah habitat in the San Diego Zoo, you’ll see a cheetah…and a dog. No it wasn’t an accident and the dog didn’t sneak in there. This was done intentionally as part of the zoo’s Animal Ambassador program.

The San Diego Zoo’s “Animal Ambassadors” are a special group of animals that are trained to travel to off-site events and participate in presentations. These exotic zoo inhabitants live off the main exhibit zoo areas where they pal around with domesticated friends. The program has paired animals such as timber wolves with New Guinea singing dogs together and is most famous for it’s cheetah/dog parings.
