cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)

CHEETAH, OR HUNTING LEOPARD. Of the wild members of the Cat family this animal is the most easily tamed. It is sometimes called the Hunting Leopard, in India and elsewhere is used in the hunting of Antelopes. It is carried blindfolded in a two-wheeled Ox-cart until the herd is seen, when it is turned loose. It approaches the herd with cat-like stealth until near enough to spring upon the Antelope, whose jugular vein it severs with a bite and whose warm blood it drinks as its share of the booty. (Cyanailaurus jubatus.)
Date 1895
