Cheetah on Fox59

Breaking News: President Obama has signed the health care bill into law. You can check out a live video at FOX59.com. 

The Morning Show with Ray Cortopassi and Angela Gagnote from 4:30am – 10:00am featured an exciting, wildly feature guest.

The Indianapolis Zoo announced a new arrival to their animal family, the cheetah.

Through a partnership with the Columbus Zoo & Nubia, Indianapolis received two cheetah’s this week as apart of a brand new cheetah exhibit coming to the zoo.

The cheetah named Row appeared on the Morning Show as a model of the cheetah awareness campaign. The important focus is conservation education because cheetah’s are at a vulnerable state in the wild and could possibly face extinction.

The new facility is expected to open Memorial Day Weekend and kids and parents will have a chance to race a cheetah in a safe environment.

Cheetah’s on average have speed from 0-65 miles per hour in seconds.

The Indianapolis Zoo is also partnering with Nubia to receive more animals due to their large population in Africa.
