Would you taunt a pack of wild cheetahs? This woman isn’t afraid to.
Marlice van Vurren didn’t grow up like most kids did. As a child, she was surrounded by orphaned and injured animals on her parents farm in Namibia. The San Bushmen, Namibia’s original inhabitants, taught Vurren how to interact with wild animals that most people wouldn’t dare walk towards with a loaded gun.
In this video, Vurren uses her cheetah-whispering skills to tease a pack of wild cats. Her interaction with the cheetahs at the end of the clip will blow your mind.
