LUCKY still de­ter­mined as ever

Nam Wheels - - NEW METAL & MORE NEWS -

From be­ing a TV star to the sur­ro­gate mom of many an or­phaned chee­tah cub that come to N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary in Namibia, Lucky has lived quite the life. You might re­mem­ber Lucky as the three-legged chee­tah which cap­tured the hearts of view­ers in the Golf television com­mer­cial back in 2009. The TV com­mer­cial told the story of Lucky and Mar­lice van Vu­uren ( co- founder of the N/ a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary) who shared the touch­ing story of Lucky the chee­tah whose hind leg was am­pu­tated due to dam­age which was caused by a gin trap. De­spite this obstacle Lucky can be seen run­ning and jump­ing in the com­mer­cial and at the end of the ad­vert she lets her hair loose in the back of a Volkswagen Golf with the win­dows down.
