After having finished off a springbok, these two cheetah cubs were chasing each other, each wanting to hold on to the 'prize,' a piece of skin left over from a kill. Knowing the cubs would follow their mother, Brugger moved his car and was shocked that, "the cubs not only walked straight towards my vehicle, but decided that they would chase each while playing with a piece of Springbok skin."
