Amazing footage of brave blonde showing wild cheetahs just who's the boss.

Marlice van Vuuren teases wild cheetahs

You're riding your dirt bike through the scrub in Namibia and you spot a coalition of wild cheetah lounging under an acacia tree.

Do you a) keep riding or b) saunter over for a closer look?

For Marlice Van Vuuren it's a no-brainer. You jump off your bike and show those pesky cheetahs who's the boss.

Marlice runs the N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia and is wise in the ways of wild animals.

"I'm doing this to show how cowardly they are," says Marlice in the video below. "As soon as you turn your back on them, they attack ... As soon as you look them in the eyes, they're afraid of you ... If you run, you're prey. But, if you turn around, they stop."

We'll take your word for it, Marlice.
