Cape Town - A guide at Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre in Plettenberg Bay was lucky enough to escape from the jaws of a cheetah after he stepped into its enclosure to feed it.

A visitor at the Centre captured the event saying "When the male cheetah finished his meat, he walked around the fence and out of nowhere attacked / bites the guide.” According to the witness “the guide reacted very calm”.

The incident brings the debate around wild animal interaction into the spotlight - especially with the recent news of two lions that were poisoned and killed by poachers at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary, which also highlights how animal sanctuaries are turning into easy target areas for poachers.
