That is just plain insane. We get idiots like that swimming in croc infested waters in the NT.

The Cheetas?

I've seen a couple videos showing tribesmen chasing cheetahs off their kills with sticks. The woman in the video understands cheetah behavior and exploits it for dramatic purpose. I would be more impressed if she could pull that off with a pride of lions.

That woman is still not as crazy as my first ex though...

As above....they feed early or late, when it's cool, not hungry or she could have been lunch...that said...the animals have become accustomed to "outsiders"
since many of the former big game parks are closed to hunting and now folks with cameras and snacks show up......still...unless you have been around them a lot, it's not a really smart move.

She's done quite a bit of work with that group of cheetahs so it's not like anyone could just walk up to them like she does. Check out the opening scene of the video below where she feeds them.

A friend of mine living in the Seychelles had three the last time I was there....he got them as kittens, about the same time as he had his daughter...they were raised together.....they got older faster....and when the little girl got too close to the door to go outside, the cats knew she wasn't allowed outside so would pick her up by the diaper and bring her back inside the house. I was one of 2-3 people that could walk into the house and the cats didn't move, I was part of the family, I could pick up Sarah and set her on my lap and not one of them moved....they also like vanilla ice cream. Sarah would get messy, cats would get messy, and when the mommy came home the cats would be licking her clean, and it drove her crazy...me bringing in ice cream before dinner.
Once while I was there, the local U.S. equivalent of the "ambassador" visited for business reasons, he sat down in a chair, cats got between him and Sarah and sat there.....I think it was a bit unnerving for him....

Ahh, that makes more sense - AFAIK truly wild cats don't act like the cats in the first vid.
Also, and correct me if I'm wrong, but Cheetahs don't hang out, generally, in large groups, do they? I seem to recall them being rather more solitary with mothers looking after their young (two or three) till they're three or so...certainly not animals that hang together in groups of a dozen or more?
edited to add from wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheetah) :

....In one Serengeti study by Caro and Collins (1987), 41% of the adult males were solitary, 40% lived in pairs and 19% lived in trios.[16].....
Unlike males and other felines, females do not establish territories. Instead, the area they live in is termed a home range. These overlap with other females' home ranges, often those of their daughters, mothers, or sisters. Females always hunt alone, although cubs will accompany their mothers to learn to hunt once they reach the age of five to six weeks.
The size of a home range depends entirely on the availability of prey. Cheetahs in southern African woodlands have ranges as small as 34 km2 (13 sq mi), while in some parts of Namibia they can reach 1,500 km2 (580 sq mi)....
a home range of 1,500 km2! quite the walk... ;)

Timothy Treadwell tried this with the Coastal Brown Bears in the Katmai. He managed to stay alive for a few years but eventually got eaten. Unfortunately, his girlfriend was with him at the time and she got eaten also. Do not look at the autopsy photos.
