A video of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, walking with a cheetah was shared by his wife Princess Haya on her Instagram page.
The short clip sees the Dubai Ruler walking right beside a cheetah – the fastest land animal in the world. Sheikh Mohammed also sits beside the cheetah AND rubs its back!
In the caption to the video, Princess Haya reveals that the Dubai Ruler personally supervised the raising of the cheetah. The caption also stated that the big cat was orphaned as a cub but it eventually found compassion in the heart of Sheikh Mohammed.
Princess Haya adds that it is “a unique glimpse of the true meaning of the words ‘trust’ and ‘bond'”.
