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.
