A cheetah guards it's kill

Zulu Nayala wildlife reserve has one resident cheetah. Word got out that she had been spotted (no pun intended) with a baby Nayala kill. We were able to get within 40 feet. She ignored the vehicles but her senses were sharp to prevent her being attacked by leopards, which are known to steal kills.
