to save last 'mascot' Asiatic cheetahsIranian environmentalists have mobilized to protect the world's last Asiatic cheetahs, estimated to number just 50 and faced with the threats of becoming roadkill, a shortage of prey and farmers' dogs. The Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s was devastating for wild animals, particularly along the country's western border.It was thought for a time that the cheetahs had been wiped out, until they were found to have retreated into the central desert regions.Three major problems have befallen the Asiatic cheetah in recent time: cars, farmers and having nothing to eat. At least 20 cheetahs have been killed in road accidents over the past 16 years.
