    Earlier this year, a frightening video clip was widely circulated on social media where a baby could be seen sitting near a glass door when all of a sudden, a large cheetah jumped at the startled little one who started crying instantly. Luckily the baby was shielded by the glass door and there was no harm done.

    While many found the short clip quite entertaining, not everyone thought it was funny that the child was so close to danger.
