Idiot Family Gets Out Of Car In Safari Park, Narrowly Miss Cheetah Attack

May 11, 2018


This is a video of a very poor-decision-making family who all got out of their vehicle at the Beekse Bergen Safari Park in the Netherlands and narrowly avoided getting attacked by cheetahs. A manager at the park says the animals are all well-fed (plus on a schedule) and don't appear to be hunting, although I'm fairly certain that won't prevent a mauling for being a dumbass.

Initially a man opens one of the front doors to take pictures of a group of cheetahs lying nearby.

A woman climbs out of one of the back doors to place two items in the car's boot.

Two children then exit the car to get a better look of the cheetahs.

Later in the video, the cheetahs can be seen bounding towards the family after they got out of their car further down the road.

One of the women, who picks up the smallest child, can be seen shooing the cheetahs away as she walks towards the car.

The whole family managed to get back into their vehicle without being hurt.

It really is amazing how stupid people can be. Like, I have a vague concept of how stupid I am (somewhere between incredibly and full-blown), and even I know better than this. What does that make these people? And with three small children in tow? It's incredible. I feel like our collective gene pool is little more than a clogged toilet at this point.

Keep going for the video. And, admittedly, props to that lady carrying the kid for remaining so calm, although I in no way attribute that to her knowledge and mastery of wilderness survival skills.

Thanks to Dev, who agrees the best place for these people to get out of their car is probably an assisted-living community.

    The mother walking back just looks upset that she is being forced back in the car. She doesn't even look that concerned that her life was about to end.... Really what is wrong with people...

    Cheetahs were overly aggressive! The park needs to speak to its feline employees. Zero stars on Yelp!!!

  • Doc Fresh

    Wow they had the hand of the most high helping them that family should have died that day

  • Talon184

    Dangerous predators cheetah'ed out of a fine meal.

  • Darren McCoy

    The child should be removed from their custody. Bonus points for the horizontal video.

    I'm more mad at the guy in the car just filming it

    TWICE! the retarded fuckers did it twice

    i feel like this was a failed scheme to "accidentally" get rid of the kid and then sue the park as a bonus
    (I'd rather think of these people as evil schemers than that humans can be this retarded)

  • JJtoob

    I mean, I believe humans can be retarded, but they can also be crafty as hell. The only thing making me question this being a plan to get rid of the kid and sue is the fact that they put themselves in far too much danger, but then again, this isn't necessarily an "or" question, they can totally be both crafty AND retarded.

    Sounds to me like God was throwing a little chlorine in the gene pool...

    In France we don't say "some fucking moron" we say "Des putains de connards d'électeurs de Macron" and I think that's beautiful.

  • Alf in pog form

    Man in car that could have driven towards the cheetah's quickly beeping the horn to distract them, does the more appropriate thing by driving slowly to get some good video while gasping.

  • Quax

    He could have. But why? Those people deserved to die. I'm actually sad they didn't.

  • Eric Ord

    Not to be contrary, but they were successful, so they obviously knew what they were doing. I give them an 8/10

    Here is what looks like the integral "parenthood skills of the year" video,

  • Meh

    This was in the Netherlands at about 20 minutes away from me. Safaripark Beekse Bergen, honestly its quite difficult to find stupid people like this.

  • Once again, the natural order is thwarted by technology and cowardice.
    Better luck next time, Noble Cheetah...

  • Douchy McDouche

    No Darwin award for those guys. Better luck next year.

  • Doog

    Almost an entire family of Darwin winners
