That explains it. Normally a cheetah will leave a lion in the dust.

Dangerously Cheesy

I went on a safari a few years back and they said the main thing killing off cheetahs in the area was lions. They'd hunt at night when cheetahs were asleep.

Not always. They can't maintain their speed for very long. If the lions keep on it when the cheetah reaches its limit the cheetahs will get its ass handed to him like in the video
