Little Girl and Cheetah Share Adorable Encounter Through Glass Partition at Virginia Zoo

A special encounter between a little girl and a cheetah was caught on camera at Roer’s Zoofari in Reston, Virginia, with the pair seen bonding through a glass partition.

The child’s mother, Ashley McHale, said she captured the adorable interaction on April 12.

McHale told Storyful that this was her 19-month-old’s first visit to a zoo, and guessed that the “chatty” toddler was probably “trying to tell” the cheetah something. Credit: Ashley McHale via Storyful
