One of the SAPPI Collection titled "David Shepherd in South Africa"

Historically ranging throughout most of Sub-Saharan Africa and extending eastward into the Middle East and to central India, the cheetah is now distributed mainly in small,
fragmented populations in central Iran and southern, eastern and northwestern Africa.
In 2016, the global cheetah population was estimated at around 7,100 individuals in the wild; it is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
In the past, cheetahs were tamed and trained for hunting ungulates.
They have been widely depicted in art, literature, advertising, and animation.

What eats a cheetah?
Lions, leopards, and hyenas will try to prey upon cheetah, particularly cheetah cubs.
Because they are so fast, adult cheetahs are difficult to catch.
Cheetahs are frequently killed by farmers and ranchers in defense of livestock.
