Description: Cheetah Chase

Story from behind the lens: Earlier this year, we assisted in the rescue of a male cheetah cub who had been badly wounded by a warthog. Spotting the same cheetah family, we decided to follow them for the day. We noticed that the family was quite close to a female warthog with her 4 piglets. Thinking that a lesson would have been learned from the previous encounter, we weren't expecting anything to happen. The little male cub was at it again! He and his sister bolted into a chase going for the kill. Mama Kisaru watching them from the sidelines. There was a good chase. The youngsters were fast and agile but mama warthog was just a little bit faster. She managed to draw the attention away from her piglets, allowing them to go hide, only to then escape from the cubs. Nothing was lost... good training for all involved.
