Cheetah Visits Cesar Chavez Elementary

CHEETAHSEUGENE, Ore. — Cheetah pride has a whole new meaning at Cesar Chavez Elementary School.

The school’s mascot came to life during an assembly Thursday morning.

Two-year-old Khayam is an ambassador cheetah at the Wildlife Safari in Winston.

Caretakers take the 96-pound cheetah on tour with them as part of their education program, and it’s always a big hit with the kids.

The Wildlife Safari says it has one of the best cheetah breeding programs in the world. It is now currently home to 17 cheetahs.
