Strength in numbers

Cheetahs specialise in hunting at speed. They don't have the strength of a lion to bring down prey. But a coalition of three male cheetahs has developed a hunting strategy which allows them to tackle prey much bigger than they would normally aim for. This technique has taken the prey by surprise as they aren't yet used to thinking of cheetah as a threat. It will take the combined weight of all three brothers to bring down a fully grown ostrich, which if they aren't careful, could inflict a fatal blow.
