JOHANNESBURG -- South African newspapers have published a tourist's photos of cheetahs attacking his wife.
The Port Elizabeth Herald reported Friday that Violet D'Mello of Aberdeen, Scotland, was attacked by cheetahs on April 28 while in a petting pen with the animals at a game reserve near Port Elizabeth in southeastern South Africa.
It says she was attacked while trying to protect young children from another group that was in the enclosure at the same time. Her husband took photos of the attack.
One of the photos taken by Archie D'Mello shows Violet D'Mello smiling and posing with a cheetah raised by humans in a petting enclosure. Others show the woman on the ground, hair flying, blood on her neck and two cheetahs nearby.
The Herald said park staff and other visitors pulled the cats off the woman, who wasn't seriously injured and continued with her holiday.
