Out of North America?

Perhaps an adjunct to "Out of Africa Debunked? This is from Science Daily.

Cheetahs migrated from North America

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is now at home on the African plains, but it started a migration 100,000 years ago from North America towards its current habitat. The research found that the migration from North America was costly for the species, triggering the first major reduction in their gene pool.

I wonder what route they took? I don't associate them with icy weather found in the north and am not aware of any other land connections.
