The lucky photographer was surprised when the cheetah came up to him quietly and hugged him.

The surprising moment when a cheetah hugs a photographer is caught in adorable pictures. Sasan Amir, who is 27 years old, took pictures at a South African wildlife sanctuary when he saw a cheetah walking toward him. In the pictures, you can see that the cheetah rubbed its head on Sasan and then sat down next to him. Sasan, a photographer, and filmmaker said, “I had been to this sanctuary a few times and saw that this cheetah was used to interacting with people.” After a while, the cheetah surprised me by coming over to me as I was setting up my camera. “I slowed down, stood up, and looked at the cheetah to let it know I knew it was coming toward me.” The cheetah was interested and slowly walked up to me and sniffed me. He then started to purr and rub his head against me. “It took me a few minutes to realize that that was a once-in-a-lifetime event.”
