A once in-a-lifetime trip to dream vacation to South Africa for couple turns into a nightmare for a 60-year-old woman from Scotland. Violet D’Mello and her husband were visiting a wildlife game reserve. Violet was inside the pen with some Cheetahs that were supposed to be safe to pet? Her husband Archie was outside taking pictures. Suddenly the Cheetah’s snapped, there were children in the pen so Violet bravely took the brunt of the attack. I wonder why her husband kept taking photos while his wife could have been killed? The Cheetah’s bit off part of her scalp. This picture was taken just moments before the attack by her husband the dedicated photographer.
