Photo: "tame" cheetahs. Hubby keeps taking pic, doesn't realize wife's being attacked







Forced to the ground and with blood pouring from her head, this British holidaymaker had a miraculous escape after being attacked by supposedly tame cheetahs.

Violet D’Mello was visiting a wildlife park with her husband Archie during a trip to South Africa for her 60th birthday.

But their day out went horrifically wrong when two cheetahs turned on her, knocking her to the ground and biting her legs and head in a horrifying attack.

Other tourists tried to scare the beasts off as park attendants desperately fought to get them away from the injured woman.

And her husband? He carried on taking photographs, saying he did not quite realise what was happening.

Cheetahs are still 100 years at least from domestication (their only way for survival according to some experts) they still should be in the wild & away from people.

I suspect that the woman in the picture will agree with you.
