Brave Mama Cheetah Chases off 330lb Male Lion as It Trying to Eat her Cubs in Kenya

Mother’s love is stronger than anything no matter what the creature is and this story proves that perfectly.

A mama cheetah saw a hunting lion trying to eat her cubs, so, she started chasing it off to keep her cubs safe.

You can see in the video below that the mama cheetah decided to surrender at first, but when she saw the lion running after her cubs she started chasing it away.

With her maternal instincts kicking in, the cheetah spun around and gave chase to the lion, turning the tables and causing the bigger cat to flee

Saruni, who captured the images from 130 metres away, said: ‘I was on a regular drive tour while we were viewing a leopard and her cubs when a male lion came out of a bush not far from us.

‘The lion was just casually strolling around his territory when he saw the cheetah and the cubs. The lion ran to the cubs and at first the mama cheetah surrendered and ran away, only to change her mind and chase the lion away.’

A cheetah chase usually lasts less than a minute and covers just 200-300 metres. At full speed, the cheetah takes three strides a second, covering seven-metres per stride.

With a possible meal in sight, the lion attempted to separate the young cubs from their mother by chasing her away across the plain

Cheetah females are solitary creatures and usually raise their cubs alone, hiding them in dens by day, and teaching them hunting skills as they grow.

She then stayed in a defensive position next to her babies to keep them protected.

This is the real meaning of mother’s love. How awesome!
