Family Flees On Foot From Cheetahs In Wild Animal Park

A French family with children was filmed running away from some cheetahs after getting out of their car at the Beekse Bergen Safari Park in the Netherlands.

The father got out of the car to get some pictures of the cheetahs, while the mother exited the vehicle to put some items in the car’s boot, and the kids left the car to get a better look at the dangerous wild cats, notes The Independent.

The cheetahs chased the family back to their car while a second party of park visitors filmed from inside their vehicle.

Niels de Wildt, a manager at the park, told Dutch broadcaster NOS:

The cheetahs are on a food schedule so they are not extremely hungry and are not in the hunt.

In the first instance they have the same reaction as when someone rings in unexpectedly, they think: hey, something strange is happening in our territory.

But in the end they do respond to this exceptional visit, and these people have been incredibly lucky.
