Cheetahs Struggling to bring down a Wildebeest

We followed these 5 cheetahs for a couple of days until they singled out a full grown Willdebeast from a large herd. After a brief 15 second chase they then struggled for 15 minutes before finally bringing down the herbivore. Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Masai Mara, Kenya
