History Edit

When Ted, Susan and Morogo find an abandoned cheetah cub named Duma, Morogo informs Ted that her mother was skinned by a poacher. Ted notices some strange markings around the cub, to which Morogo identifies as footprints. When Susan learns of this, she immediately wants to adopt her. Although the others think it's crazy, she says it's the only way for her to survive.

Abdullah is first seen at Mr. Patel's store planning to capture Duma with Mr. Patel and Nigel. When the trio go to the Johnsons' house, Mr. Patel sneaks into the house to steal Ted's whistle to call for Duma. After he got the whistle, they capture Duma.

Abdullah decides to train her for running fast. When the Johnson family go to Mr. Patel's store, Ted notices the marks on Abdullah's shoes, indicating that he was the poacher who killed Duma's mother and realizes Patel's conspiracy.

When Abdullah captures Susan, he tries to stab her until he catches Ted in the act. After he puts Ted and Susan in a cage, they leave for Nairobi. However, Morogo frees Ted and Susan from their cage and go after the trio.

When Duma was about to lose the race, Ted snatches his whistle from a cop and blows the whistle to make Duma go faster and reach the finish line. When Abdullah tries to flee from Duma, the cheetah attacks him and Abdullah is arrested by the police.
