Tame cheetah run, De Wildt Reserve.
At the Cheetah and Wildlife Trust, near Pretoria, tame cheetahs are allowed to chase a lure to
provide a photo op for visitors. It's harder than you'd think and this is the best image I got from around sixty shots of three running cheetahs.

This is a video of a problem wild cheetah that had been killing farm stock.
It had trapped (humanely) and was having a health check at De Wildt prior to being transported
to a reserve where it would not have access to domestic animals:
