Mzansi has taken to social media to react to a video of a man abandoning his wife and child after they were all pursued by cheetahs in what looks like a game reserve.
The man is seen fleeing to the car, leaving his wife and small child behind. He runs into the car and closes the door. The wild animals then turn on the wife and child. All the family members managed to escape to the car but many social media users were unhappy over how the man initially left them behind.
Mathivha Mboniseni said that protecting the child should have been his first priority:
"As a parent its supposed to be a basic instinct. The same reason the mother did not leave the child behind and ran"
Lefashnikov Seboleloson had a different opinion, saying:
"But the guy did nothing wrong, one of us got to live to tell the relatives n police - not forgetting the insurances"
Others were questioning why the family even got out of the car in the first place.
