I just received this in my E-mail and this made my day. Wow just wow. now i don't know if the story is true, but the pictures are amazing



The Law Of The Wild says ... "Kill only when you are hungry."

Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara in October last year, said he was astounded by what he saw.


"These three brothers (cheetahs) have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old," he said. "On the morning we saw them, they seemed to not be hungry ... Walking quickly, but stopping at times to play together. At one point, they met a group of impala. They all ran away except one youngster who was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily."

These extraordinary scenes followed.









they just walked away without hurting him.


Maybee this has been posted before, but its new to me and they are way cool

Awesome the story is true, makes me love it even more

dailymail..uk News


Hello little antelope, would you like to play with us?

Coming from three deadly cheetahs, it's the kind of invitation that's best refused - but amazingly, this impala escaped unscathed from its encounter.
Luckily for the youngster, it seems these three male cheetahs simply weren't hungry.

Yeah I was thinking the same, but I kept pushing it out of my mind, all that sniffing and licking. It seemed as if they transferring their scent.

Just tenderizing for later. Animals will also kill to protect their territory, and their young. Reptiles will just kill to kill (black Mamba, other snakes).

Yeah they were, but the cute little cats were Just getting the impala's Flavour stored in their memory banks. But next time its more than scent transfer.(YUMMY.)
They would have eaten as you have suggested if they were hungry.
So that little impala, very, very lucky. (this time)

Yes dogs will kill or maim for fun,i have seen sheep that have been mauled by wild/feral dogs,not a pretty site at all,cats will also toy with their prey for a fair while before they kill it ,

I love this story and the pictures - I've seen it before - but I can never get enough of it.

I'm sorry to say though the info is way off base. There are many reasons 'wild' kills 'wild' and it not just for hunger.

I think the worst wake up call I ever had concerning 'Nature' was when I witnessed a male lion who'd just taken over a pride from a older less capable male. The new 'leader' immediately killed all the lion cubs in the pride so the females would come into estrus.

Sure, it's 'Natures Way' - 'Survival of the Fittest' - but - I can tell you, I've never looked at 'Nature' or lions the same again.

peace

Hello there Creepy, Welcome to the Venga Bus Safari Bus.

Keep your arms in the vehicle at all times and do not, I repeat do not pick your nose, It’s yucky.

Straight ahead you will see a cute little Impala playing with its BFF (Best Friends Forever).
Frolicking and licking and pawing.

I am so so so so so sorry I have to post this. The photos are real but I'm afraid they left out the last two images in the set, the ones where the Cheetahs eat the Impala

You can find the complete set here The photos series is actually called "deadly complicity" and the last caption is

Three young brothers Cheetahs eating a young Impala Kenya Caption : After playing with the young Impala, Cheetah brothers have killed it and eaten.




Damn

Thanks for that link.
I knew it was only a matter of time before the cheetahs got the cute little impala.
But i was thinking days, not seconds.
Just proves i cant trust nature.
