Cheetahs Play With Impala

02/01/2010

Check out this story about a trio of young cheetahs that captured an impala and rather than killing and eating it, decided to play with it.  Judging from the photos, the impala was none the worse for wear for the experience, and seems to have been at total ease with the affections of the predatory felines.  Eventually the cheetahs grew bored with their new playmate, at which point the impala made its getaway.
