CINCINNATI — Five new cheetah cubs are settling in at the Cincinnati Zoo. They were delivered via rare C-section.

Once the births were deemed high risk, veterinarians had to step in to perform the emergency procedure to protect the cubs and the mother.

The three boys and two girl cubs are getting round-the-clock care and are being bottle fed.

So far, everyone is doing well.
