Part 2 - On Safari

From On Safari, 9:02 am on 20 October 2011

Lynn visits the De Wildt Cheetah Sanctuary. Cheetahs may be the fastest land animals on earth today, but they can't outrun mankind. Their habitat is under threat, they remain the target of some farmers worried about stock losses, and if they're injured, they have no chance of surviving in the wild. The De Wildt Cheetah Sanctuary out of Pretoria in South Africa cares for injured cheetahs, returning them to the wild whenever possible, and caring for those who can't fend for themselves. In this episode of a two part look at the Sanctuary, Lynn Freeman talks to the founder Ann van Dyk and to her dedicated team, goes on the feeding rounds, and falls utterly under the cheetah's spell.
