Gazelle running for its life with cheetah behind and cubs watching

The Thomson's gazelle was grazing while the cheetah sneaked low in the grass, leaving her two cubs behind. Once started, the chase lasted 13sec, before the cheetah gave away. The two cubs were watching carefully. Background; lots of non-caring Gnus.
