Persistance Hunt: Kenyans Run Down Cheetahs

Cheetah-hunting shoes?
From the BBC this morning:
"Mr Hassan, from a village near Wajir town, said the cheetahs were attacking his goat herd over several weeks.

""These cheetahs killed 15 of my goats - they were coming to my house daily to kill my goats," he said.

"He said he decided to return to his village to organise their capture at a time of day when cheetahs get very tired and usually rest in shade.

""I was sipping a cup of tea when I saw them killing another goat," he said, explaining that this was early in the morning.

"He said he waited until several hours later when the sun was high to go after them.

""I called some youths and we ran after them," he said.

""We caught them and we brought them to the local authorities.""
They were able to capture the cheetahs, alive, without the use of weapons.
