GLEN ROSE (CBSDFW/AP) – At 8 years old Bruce the cheetah is a bit long in the tooth to become a dad, but he recently has sired two litters of cubs.

The Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in North Texas announced Friday that three cubs were born last month and another five were born Nov. 6.

Fossil Rim is a breeding facility for animals that are in peril or endangered.

The first litter of one male and two females was born to 3-year-old Gracie, a first-time mom. The second litter of one male and four females was born to 4-year-old Asanti, who came to the center from the Toronto Zoo in 2011.

The cubs and their mothers are being kept in “birthing yards” until they’re old enough for public viewing at the center in Glen Rose, about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

And according to the Wildlife Center – Wednesday December 4th if International Cheetah Day!
