Cheetahs

If we're gonna race animals...

Why not go for the fastest? As cheetahs are the fastest animal on land, they would be great fun to watch at the races. They are trainable, and the ancient Egyptians used them in hunting. This practice continued in Abyssinia into the 1930's.

I imagine that the track would be much like a greyhound track, only faster. That electric rabbit would need a little suping up. A portion of the profits could go towards cheetah conservation programs.

       Maybe not the ones being raced, which have been trained, but the profits that [Xenophile] speaks of could indeed fund impressive conservation programs, resulting in a greater wild population of cheetahs. Possibly, other endangered species could also be raced, which would in turn, given time, result in a greater wild population of that species. [+]

       I'm Twisted. :You can't really make a Cat do anything, can you? (I submit to the Abysisinian ref, though I've ne're heard of it.)
It's one way to assure the Cheetah's survival, though --- 4 on biggie (cat speak - corey)?.

       Cheetahs is a no alcohol served, nude strip club in San Diego. I think these girls are sprinters as well.

       I nearly missed this but I spotted it in time.

       No, I don't have a cat. My sister has a cat. My mother has a cat. My fiance has had three cats at one time or another. As for making a cat do something... Well you don't have to MAKE a cheetah chase stuff. They do that naturally. The objection that the race would be over quickly gives me pause, but then drag racing isn't exactly an all-day event. Maybe they could have a half-dozen cheetah races, if one doesn't last long enough.

       They could chase the now obsolete greyhounds?

       heh heh Now there's an idea.

       Cheetahs are overrated.

       They do go fast, but they get your fingers all orange, and ... oh, sorry, I thought we were talking about cheetohs.

       Just chuck an antelope in there, sit back and watch nature in all its g(l)ory.
marklar, Sep 17 2007
  

       Train the antelope and give it head start.
Voice, Nov 19 2011
  

       Train the antelope to do what? Run like hell away from things that want to eat it? Antelopes already know how to do that.
