 Wild gentleness: this is how a wild cheetah approaches and hugs the photographer in this cute photo

Photos captures the moment a cheetah hugged a wildlife photographer.

However, this isn’t the first time this lucky guy gets the chance to cuddle with a wild cat.

German photographer Sasan Amir was visiting a wildlife sanctuary in South Africa when a cheetah decided to surprise him in the cutest way.

The 27-year-old photographer was about to take some pictures when a huge cat calmly approached him and rested his head on him.

β€œI slowed down, stopped and looked at the cheetah to show that I know it is coming towards me,” Amir told CATERS NEWS.

The friendly cheetah took the man by surprise.

β€œIt took me a few minutes to realize what a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity this was,” he explained.

But this isn’t Amir’s first encounter with something like this. He has been photographing large wild cats for almost five years.
