Just In: Female Cheetahs are Whores

From CNN:

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- For female cheetahs in the Serengeti, the call of the wild is just too hard to resist as new research shows nearly half of their litters are made up of cubs with different fathers.
And while the serial infidelities of the females does ensure a broader genetic mix to help the survival of the endangered species, it comes at a cost, the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) said on Wednesday. "Mating with more than one male poses a serious threat to females, increasing the risk of exposure to parasites and diseases," said Dada Gottelli, ZSL's lead scientist for the research.

I knew it. Just knew it. Whores! There all whores! Seriously though - who fucking paid for this dumbass study? Let's see. We have serious subjects such as global warming, space exploration and apparenlty "I wonder if female Cheetahs fuck a lot?" we know...and the world is a better place.
