Oh for crying out loud. A woman decided to dangle her two year old kid over the cheetah enclosure at a Cleveland zoo (what could possibly go wrong?). Whoopsie…he slipped. The child kaboomed 12ft to the bottom of the pit where the cheetahs just stared. Meanwhile, the horrified parents did the super hero act by jumping in for a rescue. In a kind “what now” scenerio the family waited to be rescued by head shaking staff. Zoo officials said the cheetahs didn’t attack because the whole episode scared the bejezzus out of them.

Botswana’s president got a nasty surprise while visiting an army barracks last week. He got too close to a cheetah at feeding time and it friggin bit/scratched him in the face. Oh, I have no idea what the cheetah was doing at the barracks either, so don’t ask.
