Cheetah cubs preparing for move to new enclosure at Metro Richmond Zoo

Posted: Updated:
CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Some of Chesterfield's most recognizable residents are making a big move in the coming days. 

The Metro Richmond Zoo is preparing to move cheetahs Chester, Richie, Rico, Hanna and Amelia to their new enclosure.

The hugely popular "Cheetah Cam" will shut down Friday before the 4 p.m. feeding.

There's still no exact date for the cubs to go on display. Weather could become a factor, and keepers want to give the cheetahs time to adjust to their new habitat.
