Hundreds of cheetah cubs are being stolen from the wild, decimating the wild population in Africa. For every 5 cubs that are taken, only 1 survives. They are being smuggled illegally into the Middle East to be sold as pets. Not A Pet looks at the illegal wildlife pet trade, and the role social media plays in the parading and trading of exotic animals online.
