  • trent

  • Johnny

    that was great footage…and showing the blood was great…it shows the seriousness of damage of what these animals will and can do…they’re not meant to be pets…being raised overseas where they really don’t edit things out is more realistic, i wished America would get out of its bubble and would do the same…Great Job on your study…keep it up…my family and i are learning a lot from what you do…Take Care and God Bless…

  • Sarah

    Well it serves them right, they are the big creatures walking up-right and those cats dont know them and put them in the catagory “potentionally harmful”. The scratches weren’t that bad but hey, cheetahs are bigger than house cats…

  • cheetah girl

    those guys are stupid they sould of let the cheetah be or try to help it the only person who derserves to help the cheetahs is doctor laurie marker

    I am a cat lover and this was one of the best & saddest documentaries I’ve seen. The brothers bond and their bond with Simon King was so unreal. I couldn’t believe how close they all were. Thank you Mr. King for allowing the public to expereince this love with you. I didn’t think Toki would make it after losing his brother and the fight with the 3 cheetahs. Thank god he pulled thru. This was truly a tear jerker.

  • chihara b.

    More blood!!!!!!!!my little brother Noah loves toki because its a cat.My cat smoky says that you should make a video of her because she can run and hunt and especially puuuuuurrr.(invader to).chihara barnes 11.+ needs MORE blood (not from the cheatah)!

  • Jack

    i like the dubbed in lion noises. Cheetah’s don’t roar.

  • Maddy

    I got shivers down my spine when they showed the blood. NASTY!

  • erin

    simon should make his own website. does he have one?

    this cheetah was probably just rambunctious. it was a very large female! i love cheetahs, they are my favorite animal. this female has really shown how strong cheetahs actually can be! dang if the camera man just kept the camera still this would be awesomer!

  • Diane

    it was sad that the rabid cheetah died :’(

  • Lesley

    SAD that you said the cheetah was rabid. Can I believe what you say; can I believe in the tests? I DON’T THINK SO.
    I would also froth at the mouth being kept locked up in a tiny cage, especially if I had cubs to look after. Maybe I don’t know how bad rabies is, but the poor cat could have at least had a more humane ending. It certainly did not look like rabies, more like a desperate, caged cat that had a previous life and could not do anything about it.

    Hey there You have done an excellent job I will certainly digg it and individually suggest to my friends I am confident they will be benefited from

  • Brandon Tetter

    Thanks for this glorious article. One other thing is that a lot of digital cameras come equipped with a new zoom lens that permits more or less of the scene to be included by means of ‘zooming’ in and out. Most of these changes in target length tend to be reflected from the viewfinder and on big display screen on the back of the camera.
