Dallas Zoo cheetah cub dies

Posted: Updated:

The Dallas Zoo reported Tuesday that one of its 6-month-old cheetah cubs, Kamau, is dead.

The cub and his brother, Winspear, reportedly became sick a week ago with a severe respiratory illness.

The cubs were being treated around the clock at the zoo's hospital.

Kamau was the smaller of the two cubs, and while his brother's condition improved, his only worsened.

A necropsy revealed evidence that Kamau also had pneumonia.
