Five stories that have North Texas talking: a Dallas-to-Houston bullet train is closer to reality; a cheetah cub at the Dallas Zoo has died; luxury home sales are booming, and more.

Dallas Zoo

Kamau, the Dallas Zoo’s beloved 6-month-old cheetah cub, died Tuesday afternoon from pneumonia.

Kamau and his brother, Winspear, became sick last week and were treated around the clock by veterinary staff, the zoo reports.

Winspear is recovering and in stable condition. Kamau, who was smaller, became gravely ill Tuesday. Zoo staff tried to resuscitate him.
