Comments: Nicely done. Amazing they captured the fight between Linyanti and Savuti coalitions

Summary: Gunner is a young cheetah born into a cheetah coalition in Linyanti, Botswana. From the moment he opens his eyes the odds are stacked against him. He is the runt of the litter. Gunner's mother tries her best to tame and teach her growing cubs. His brothers take her no-nonsense cheetah boot camp seriously. Their survival depends on how quickly they can learn to hunt alone, and together. Out of the south another coalition of cheetahs emerges from the Savuti. Young, fit, and shameless, these three brothers declare their intention to take over the Linyanti at all costs. One dark night Gunner's impulses get the better of him; he sets out on his own and is ambushed by the Savuti clan. His brothers step in to defend him. It is a bloodbath. In the drawn-out battle, one of the brothers is killed. The other dies in an elephant stampede. As the sole survivor Gunner carries a new burden. His coalition is destroyed. Life becomes harder by the day and without support from his brothers, defending Linyanti grows more difficult. To gather his strength Gunner must feed. In an epic takedown Gunner kills a full-grown kudu female. Emboldened, he seeks out a female. Gunner rescues the Linyanti legacy and earns his territory. No longer a runt, he's a ruler
