THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) _ A group of tourists had an unsettling experience at a Dutch wildlife park when they got out of their car and several cheetahs chased them back inside the vehicle.

A video widely aired on Dutch media showed a group of four adults, one of them carrying a young child, rushing back to a car at the Beekse Bergen park as at least three cheetahs moved toward them.

The park’s general manager, Niels de Wildt, told local broadcaster Omroep Brabant that the visitors made a lucky escape, “but what possessed these people is a mystery to me.”

De Wildt says the park has clear warnings in several languages advising visitors not to get out of their cars while driving through animal enclosures.
