The animal the cheetah has always been killed for its skin or
captured for it's hunting skills. Recently, humans are the main thing pushing cheetahs towards extinction.
The population of humans continues to increase, therefore endangered species are slowly but surely being "squeezed
out." The space their living in is becoming smaller and smaller aswell as their food supply. In 1900 there were
about 100,000 cheetah worldwide. Presently, they estimate 5,000 to 25,000 worldwide with about 1/10 of those living
There has been an international ban on spotted-cat fur since 1975. However, cheetah fur is still
