As per latest but shocking video that got shared on YouTube on Friday, a family comprising a female with a small kid got tracked by deadly cheetahs after getting out of their vehicle in a Dutch wildlife park. The video has been viewed by millions of people. In the video recording, recorded on Monday in the Beekse Bergen Safari Park, the family members were witnessed fending off two agitated cheetahs after security admonitions.
A video widely aired on Dutch media showed a group of four adults, one of them carrying a young child, rushing back to a car at the Beekse Bergen park as at least three cheetahs moved toward them.
As per Niels de Wildt, the park's general manager, the tourists made a lucky runaway, "but what possessed these people is a anonymity to me."
Niels added that the park has clear word of warnings in numerous languages suggesting visitors not to come out of their vehicles while going via animal enclosures. "The cheetahs are on a food schedule so they are not extremely hungry and are not in the hunt," Wildt added up. "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.'"
In the recording, the cheetahs were showcasing main interest towards the young kid, maybe considering it potentially uncomplicated prey.
In well-known safari spots like South Africa and Botswana, vehicles normally are open-top. Accordingly, small kids are generally banished from taking part or visiting the safari drives as they may be not capable of following the strict rules. Visiting such parks in an open-topped vehicle is not normally considered hazardous, as big cats think the big cars to be a single creature and too large for them to attack. But, passengers are always advised never to come out of the vehicle or to stand up.
