Wild animals are, well wild. They have not been tamed and are not used to humans. They can often be dangerous, and many species see humans as prey. A volunteer at the Cheetah Experience in South Africa, Dolph Volker, was lying in the grass one day when something amazing happened!
One of the cheetahs came up next to him and started to groom him a little. Then, the big cat snuggled up and took a nap! Of course, the big kitty was very happy, so there was a lot of purring going on! Don’t think that this is something that just happens out of the blue.
It takes many months of hard work to get wild animals to be so trusting of humans. But, as you can see, it is well worth the work! Again, share away, people!
