12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Fence

A significant number of cheetahs at the CCF in Namibia will be returned to the wild after they show an ability to successfully hunt among other things. Part of their daily routine is running after the truck that carries their lunch. Those that are closest to their release are usually separated from the truck by a fence along the dirt road.
