A Young San Girl Petting a Cheetah
A cheetah who was rescued as a cub and grew up at a sanctuary in Namibia is calm and friendly around people and was relaxed standing next to a lovely, young San girl as she pets her. The two look like there is a connection between them as if the cheetah is a larger version of a tame cat that enjoys a neck scratch.
