LUCKY still determined as ever
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.
