Asiatic or Iranian cheetah
Cheetah asiatic subspecies (Acinonyx jubatus venaticus)
Is naturally overthrown in all countries except Iran and probably Turkmenistan and pakistan.

Pardisan eco-park, Tehran.
This male cheetah (Kushki) was captured by a hunter around east of Turan National park when was a cub.
Mr. Kushki -a nature lover- bought it and gave it to IranDoe.
After one year being under watch, Kushki tranformed to a fenced site near its birthplace at Miandasht protected area (Doshakh region) in Khorasan province in Dec 2008.
Now Kushki is learning how to hunt & how to live in nature.
