I was meandering through my Twitter feed this morning when the video below caught my eye. Is that a man cuddling up with two cheetahs?
I had to click play.
South African forest guard would tell his bosses he slept in the cheetah enclosure. They didn’t believe him and set up a camera… pic.twitter.com/HJLduCsXg8

Turns out that yes, that was a man just casually sleeping with two cheetahs like they’re tabby cats. I don’t know this man, but I can only assume that he’s hoping to be killed by one of these big cats one day.
Why else would somebody willingly sleep with cheetahs? Sure, he might have a few fun nights cozying up with the cats, but they’re definitely going to try to kill him at some point, right? Isn’t that how all of these stories end?
I did some more research, and I think the clip above is from YouTube channel Dolph C. Volker. He has posted multiple videos to his channel documenting his life in the cheetah enclosure.
He might be insane. He might be crazy. He might hope that a cheetah will kill him someday. I’m not really sure, but he does look happy. Good for him, but I just hope his adrenaline rush of sleeping with cheetahs can be fulfilled by another less-deadly activity someday.
