Cheeta Man

Since cutting the cable and buying a Roku, my husband and I have found more interesting television than ever before, often via YouTube. Somehow, yesterday he came across ‘Cheeta Man’, a fabulous story about big cat conservationists.

It’s no secret I adore lean young men with long hair. Soft spoken, twenty-eight year old Frenchman and naturalist Olivier Houalet (pronounced Olivi-ay Wha-lay) knocked my socks off. The story of what he and his collaborators endeavor, attempting to reintroduce orphaned cheetahs back into the wild, is astonishing.

Mr. Houalet is brave to the point of insanity. If you want to get an idea of this but don’t have three quarters of an hour to spend watching the entire cool documentary, the opening shows Olivier’s typical interactions with the five wild animals. Throughout the project, these two sets of related brothers and a single loner share fascinating, changing dynamics among themselves. I highly recommend watching in entirety.

Would you go on an African safari if you could?

    1. I'm a beach person, too, but would love to meet this guy. He seems sweet as well as hot, so mild mannered and calm while acting a hero. Glad you're feeling better!

  5. Yes, I would go on a safari if I got a chance.
    That's an amazing story of putting cheetahs back into the wild.
    Incidentally, I have also cut the cable, and I have gone in for the Amazon Fire TV Stick. I will be blogging about it after the A to Z Challenge is over.
    I shall check out the documentary. I am sure I will like it.
    Take care.

  6. Wow, he is good looking and I think he knows it. He's also got the gall of a young man who thinks they are immortal. Serves him well for now.

  7. Such fascinating stuff on YouTube.

    I discovered you can get PBS on Roku. It's free. And every NOVA ever made is on there. Treasure!
