Dallas Zoo Brings In Lab To Calm Down Cheetah Cubs

Fox News - An unlikely playmate has been brought into the Dallas Zoo to help calm two male cheetah cubs: an 8-week-old black Labrador retriever puppy named Amani.

Amani is joining two 8-week-old feline brothers, Winspear and Kamau, born July 8 at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Va.

According to a zoo statement, Amani means "peace" in Swahili.

Since Labs are easygoing in public settings and since the pup will grow with the cubs, zoo experts believe he'll provide a calming influence for the cats. More.

Uh, I'm no Marlin Perkins, but isn't there a chance this could go horribly wrong?

"We haz black lab for dinner?"
