This cheetah (duma in Swahili) had just killed a gazelle (swala in Swahili) on the Serengeti in Tanzania, Africa. A spotted hyena (fisi in Swahili) stole the Cheetah's dinner and the cheetah did not put up a fight, giving up the meal rather than risk injury. Here the cheetah is intently watching the hyena with the kill.
