How does a Cheetah Defend Itself?

A cheetah is the fastest animal on land, thus they have the ability to outrun predators, for short distances. A cheetah also has sharp claws and teeth to help fight off natural predators. Humans are their biggest threat and they are defenseless to the guns and weaponry of man. Cheetah cubs are the most vulnerable to natural predators and can be attacked by lions and hyenas.
