Is there really any such thing as a “tame” cheetah?
Well a British tourist found out when she was mauled by two cheetahs that are supposed to be tame enough to pet.
Violet D’Mello had been petting the “tame” cats in the petting area of a South African game park with other tourists when they began attacking an eight-year-old girl.
Violet watched in horror as they clawed and bit Camryn Malan’s leg.
They then lost interest and began eyeing up the local girl's seven-year-old brother Calum who was trying to flee.
Violet said her holiday turned into a "nightmare" when she intervened and they immediately turned their attention to her:
"It all happened so fast. After his sister was free, the boy ran. As I stopped him, something jumped me from behind," she said.
Look at the crazy pictures that occurred while Violet was petting the “tamed” animals.
