Viral alert: impala evades cheetahs, jumps into Toyota

Videos of wild animals doing extraordinary things around humans have a tendency to blow up online. Just look at how many views Battle at Kruger and Buck Norris managed to attract. It’s fairly reasonable therefore to expect big things from the latest crazy animal video to come out of South Africa.

The video, shot in the Kruger National Park shows a herd of impala being chased by a couple of cheetahs, until one decides that the only place it could safely evade the hunter is in the back of a Toyota SUV, which has its window open. Once the danger is cleared the impala is let out of the passenger side of the vehicle and saunters off to safety.

Seriously, expect the web to go crazy for this one.
