Five cheetah cubs are getting a helping hand from a nursery dog after being born via C-Section in Ohio. The cubs were born on March 8th and zoo officials say they are doing much better after receiving critical care at the zoo's nursery. Zoo workers are bottle-feeding the cubs and have brought in an Australian shepherd dog to give the cubs a companion to snuggle and provide some warmth. The zoo says having the dog nearby also helps the cubs develop by giving them a body to climb.
