Eye of the Cheetah

There's a story doing the rounds at the moment that there's a blimmin' cheetah been rounded up after it was seen wandering around Abu Dhabi. The city's name means father of the gazelle in Arabic so maybe the big cat was on the prowl for some tasty deer treats before being sadly disabused of the notion that there are any still hanging around. 

The authorities helpfully pointed out that there are no longer any wild cheetahs in the area so it stands to reason that it was someone's pet that got away.  The fact that it had a broken leash around its neck and a broken paw, presumably from jumping down from a wall, probably gave it away as well.
