    Those pictures look horribly photoshopped. Especially, the third one.

    Call me naive but I'm just not seeing what's photoshopped. It's not it's that impossible of an idea for three hunters who are already full to not kill something.

    These cheetahs are pussies






    lol

    Stuff like this does happen from time to time I remember reading about a polar bear that came across a pack of huskies and played with them the huskies belonged to someone with a camera so the whole thing was photo'd

    The 2nd pic looks legit. I can kind of see why people think the others are shopped, though.

    I'd think this is cute, but that antelope was probably fearing for his life, and if they run into each other next week and the cheetahs aren't on a full stomach...

    The impala's right front leg appears to be shorter than the left and underdeveloped. It likely won't be able to outrun any predator.

    NOM.

    Cats are so good at hunting they often bust the 10% success rate most other predators hover around. They are, generally speaking, among the most successful predators in the history of life on this planet. They can afford to play sometimes.

    I can also see why some think this is photoshoped, but if it's real, it's a very cool story and pictures.

    Ah, a Daily Mail link. I can see why so many don't trust these photographs as being authentic.

    That said, if you look up the photographer (who works with his wife), he is actually an award-winning nature photographer and would, one would hope, not jeopardize his career for a few altered pictures.

    The first one looks PS'd, because the antelope in completely without shadow.

    Under closer inspection the other two look real enough to my eyes. I mean, besides the fact that the Cheetahs are killing it. I could be missing something, though.

    Too bad they ate him anyway.


    I do the same stuff with steak. I admire it, smile at it, smell it and stuff, then chow down like no tomorrow.
