First cheetah cubs born in Quebec make their debut at Parc Safari
HEMMINGFORD, Quebec (NBC News) —
Cheetah cubs Mosi and Jelanie are 3 months old, and little do they know, they've made history in Canada.
They're the first cheetahs born in Quebec. In early May, they were born about a week premature.
"We had to go in surgery as a C-section and remove the cubs," trainer Natalie Santerre says.
The cubs' mother has no memory of giving birth and likely would have rejected them as her own.
Santerre said it's a miracle they were even born.
"Cheetahs are a very difficult species to breed in captivity for many reasons," she explains.
