Cheetah Run

CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati Zoo visitors will get the chance to see the world's fastest land animals in action.

The Cheetah Encounter exhibit that opens tomorrow features a track 100 yards long where the cats are expected to hit 40 miles per hour as they run after a lure.

The director of the zoo's Cat Ambassador Program says you can spend two weeks and a lot of money in Africa and never catch a glimpse of a cheetah running. But at the zoo, you'll see it twice a day.

Officials say Cincinnati's zoo will be the first in the country with a cheetah run on the premises and rolled into the regular admission charge.
