A male cheetah cub, one of two cubs born in December to different mothers, is weighed by lead keeper Lacey Braun, a daily routine at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, west of Washington, D.C. The male was placed with the female cub and her mother, Zazi, since female cheetahs do not produce enough milk when only a single cub is present. The male weighed in at 10 pounds, the female at 9.

Pictures in the News | Feb. 9, 2011

Today’s Pictures in the News begin with the continuing trials and tribulations of actress Lindsay Lohan as she is charged in Los Angeles with one count of felony grand theft for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a store in Venice, Calif.

Along the Cambodia-Thailand border, villagers displaced by the conflict between the two countries are given shelter and food at a Buddhist pagoda; a cache of ammunition is turned in during a government guns-for-food drive in Monterrey, Mexico; and Aero India 2011 opens in Bangalore with a display of colorful aerobatics by the Indian air force.

Fans cheer and a competitor is a virtual blur at the Alpine Skiing World Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. In London, we get a behind-the-scenes look at the new exhibition that explores some of nature’s most bizarre and intimate secrets.

Interesting hairstyles abound at the Kiev Hairdressers Cup in Ukraine; the pyramids reopen to tourists in Egypt; while back in Germany, we get a look inside a model of the unmanned supply ship scheduled to be launched to the International Space Station next week.

Arctic conditions drop over a foot of snow on parts of Arkansas, cloaking in white several seemingly perplexed bovines; while just west of the nation’s capital, a male cheetah cub-in-a-bucket, one of two born at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in December, appears resigned to a daily weighing. Today it was 10 pounds. Presumably there was no cheating.
