Kenya Wildlife Service rangers in Wajir rescue two one-week-old cheetah siblings.
The cubs were airlifted to Wilson Airport, then transferred to the Animal Orphanage.
The rangers while speaking to the press said that the Cheetahs are predators that do not eat other predators or even challenge other predators.
Humans are not prey to Cheetahs and a human's height will also deter even an inquisitive Cheetah from approaching
"It is a well-recorded fact that Cheetahs are docile animals and do not pose a threat to humans. These beautiful cats are shy and will avoid direct contact with humans," They said.
Known for their speed and tremendous athleticism, cheetahs are one of the most powerful cats in the wilderness.
"Cheetahs rarely attack humans. If you’re headed out on safari, though, it’s best to prepare for the worst. Understanding how to avoid and fight back against cheetah attacks will give you a better chance of survival if one of these big cats comes for you." They added.
However a section of Kenyans who came across the viral photo on social media platforms reacted as follows;
Prince: I love the response, Please, do the same speed for humans too
Oscar:Animal orphanage or game park for us to view by paying in future?
Stanley: I have never heard you rangers airlifting someone mauled by your animals.
