In a minute you watch a pack of cheetahs from a safe distance on your safari, the next wildcat jumps into the backseat of your truck and simply hangs there.
That's happened Britton Hayes The son of KOMO NewsRadio Anchor Elisa Jaffe who managed to fight his fear and record a video of a cheetah jumping into his truck.
According to KOMO News, Hayes was with a group that followed three cheetah brothers in Gol Kopjes of Serengeti as the cat approached.
"We began to notice that the cheetahs became curious about the vehicle," Hayes said. "But it was too late to drive away or anything because you do not want to scare the animals, because then things usually go awry."
By KOMO, Hayes said his group had focused on a separate cheetah who had jumped on the hood of their SUV when the other cheetah jumped into the backseat. "
" One of the cheetah jumped on the hood and sniffed around, so we all concentrated on the cheetah on the hood. That looked around, "he said." While we all watched the cheetah in the front, there was one flew around the back of the brothers and hopped behind the vehicle to try to sniff us and make sure we were not a threat. "
After Hayes, his safari guide," kept calm and made sure I did not miss the Eyesight still frightened the cheetah. "
" Honestly, it was probably one of the scariest moments of my life. I felt like I needed to get rid of thoughts because of everything said about such predators, they can feel anxiety and any kind of discomfort, and then they will react accordingly, "he explained." I wanted so calmly and be quiet as possible to avoid a bad outcome. "
