Four men from a village in north-east Kenya have chased down and captured two cheetahs.

The cheetahs had been killing their goats.

The men waited until the hottest part of the day before launching the chase over a distance of 6.4km.

The cheetahs got so tired they could not run any more. The villagers captured them alive and handed them over to the Kenya Wildlife Service.

Cheetahs are the fastest-running animals on the planet and can reach speeds of at least 104km. They also have the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds. 

However,  their speed is only useful for around 500 m (1,600 ft), hence the reason they were caught by the villagers.
