Jan 30, 2010: Cheetahs Win
These three Cheetah brothers easily separated this Impala fawn from the herd. But then, evidently they weren't hungry, because they just played with it a little, then let it go.
Maybe it made the boys melancholy, 'cause it smelled like Mama's breath.

Mama's breath... hahaha The webs are full of people talking about unity of species and triumph of love over hate. It's just a group of bored cats terrorizing the impala for fun. Nature at it's most mundane, I think.

They were just licking the lollypop before they bit to the chewy middle.

Even though I'd never heard of "Mr Hanky half way out the door" (see "Coyotesicle 1/23/10), this is obviously the Impala's time.

Somehow I don't this bodes well for these cheetahs being smart hunters in the future...

They're not being nice. They're just planning ahead.

They should have never gone for Impalas in the first place.

It's a cheetah bachelor party -a last fling with someone totally unsuitable and of a different species before he settles down with another cheetah.

This would've been more fun if I hadn't had to re-save the pic four times to get in under the 175 kb limit. (All that for one word.)

This story made it onto Cute Overload, and several people gave more details in their comments (so none of this information is original to me, I'm just repeating what they said over there). Apparently the cheetahs didn't actually let the impala go, Daily Mail made up the ending. Here's what actually happened after the impala ran away:
