'Cheetah Cam' Captures Chase Through the Bush

Clip: Season 36 Episode 9 | 3m 7s

Cheetahs are experts at chasing down prey over the open savannah, but brush-covered scrubland presents an entirely different challenge. Journey along with a camera-wearing cheetah and his siblings as they chase an elk-like eland and its young calf through the brush. If successful, these young cheetahs may finally be ready to hunt without supervision.
