When Cheetahs Attack in Houston Print E-mail

Just in case you thought that crime in Dallas was bad, the City of Houston is celebrating International Cheetah Day by permitting local zoo officials to give two cheetahs permission to roam free in the greater public.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "In honor of this day -- meant to raise awareness of the care of big cats from the Houston Zoo -- two male cheetahs from the Houston Zoo visited the Houston Sports Park off Kirby where the Houston Dynamo practice to show off their running skills.

Apparently the two cheetahs were not playing soccer with the Houston Dynamo, so it could not be determined if they will soon take the field in futures games.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "The cheetah boys, Kito and Kiburi, made three runs for cameras, chasing a lure. Of course they were off the leash, which meant that media types were separated from the cats, lest there be a painful mishap."

Nonetheless, the two cheetahs were faster than the Houston Dynamo soccer players in sprints as they clould clock "42 mph" during practice.
