People often ask, “How do you get the cheetahs to run”? Running is instinctual for them, the challenge is finding something they will chase! Our cheetahs chase after a fluffy dog toy, we call it a lure.
Bravo keeps his eyes on the lure as he runs.
Sara stretches to catch up to the lure.
If the lure turns, so does the cat!
Tom strikes the lure to try to "trip it", just like what a wild cheetah would do to a gazelle.
Once in range of the catch, its time to put on the breaks!
Nia catches the lure with glee.
Tom rests with his catch.
Our cheetahs make it look easy!
Thanks to Mark F. for the high speed shots!
