Cape Town - While hitting or kicking a man when he’s down is regarded as foul play, for a cheetah that's a win. 

In this latest video from Latest Sighting, captured by Yusuf Hargovan, 23 year old Law student, the cheetah can be seen enjoying this "this easy meal". 

According to Hargovan, he and his family were on a family trip to the Kruger National Park and had heard about three male cheetahs lying on an ant hill near Transport Dam.

"We decided to take a chance and go and look for them despite that others had said we wouldn't be able to see them as they were laying down.," he tells Latest Sighting. "On arrival, we initially struggled to see them but then everything changed and they all stood up and started walking towards a group of impala." 

Hargovan says in an instance the chase began and the impalas ran into the thicket and we thought that was it.

"We drove down the road hoping we could see more of what was happening when suddenly my brother shouted that they were running towards our cars. That's when we saw the impala jumping into the side of the Toyota Fortuner behind us."
