Amazing sight of cheetahs petting an antelope in the wild [Amazing Photo of the Day]

This, apparently, actually happened:

Photographer Michel Denis captured these amazing pictures on safari in Kenya.

He was astounded by what he saw: “These brothers have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old, On the morning he saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together. ‘At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away.. But one youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily’.”

Then extraordinary scenes followed; they just walked away without hurting him.

Amazing, no?

    This is a little known and rarely seen tactic employed by more advanced cheetahs. They befriend young, tender animals appearing on their grocery list and invite them over for a marathon of LoTR. As the credits roll on the last film, it’s lights out for the guests!
