Can You Chase Cheetahs - Kenyan Men Did it and Captured Them


The cheetah is a large cat native to Africa and central Iran. It is the fastest land animal, capable of running at 80 to 128 km/h, and as such has several adaptations for speed, including a light build, long thin legs and a long tail. #Wikipedia

The cheetah can travel from 0 to 40 in just three strides. Top speed for the cat is 70 mph. They can see up to two miles away, a feat that comes in handy when hunting. It won't be possible for any human on foot to catch the cheetah. But some men did it.

Four men killed cheetahs for killing their livestock. This happened in a village in northeast Kenya. The men chased down and captured two cheetahs which were killing their goats. The owner of the goats said the cheetahs had been picking off his livestock one by one, every day.

The men waited until the hottest part of the day before they embarked on the chase, which is a distance of over six kilometres. According to news, the cheetahs got so tired during the chase and they couldn't run anymore. The men captured them alive and handed them over the Kenyan Wildlife Services.
