Cheyenne Woods Makes a Wild New Friend in Zambia

December 14, 2015

Cheyenne Woods is visiting Zambia with Golf Fore Africa, a charity that works to provide access to clean water by building wells. Today she got cozy — and brave — with a cheetah named Susan, taking the big cat for a walk on a leash and posing for photos.

The LPGA pro recently earned her tour card at Q-School and seems to be enjoying her time abroad, if her Twitter feed is any indication. She’s posted snaps of handing out backpacks to kids in the villages and the dedication of a well she helped raise money to build.

In her video, Woods acts like walking a cheetah is just another everyday task. Although, as far as large carnivores go, Susan seems to be pretty well-behaved.
