The footage has been viewed over 200,000 times since it was posted on Thursday, but in the midst of controversy at the zoo since a gorilla was killed Saturday after a child got into the exhibit, some comments were critical.
"This is just another example of the lack of good judgment by this zoo that also killed Harambe," Barb Ponter wrote.
"It seems like your zoo is feeding off of the gorilla attention at this point. That cheetah is a beauty, that's for sure. Cool video. Poor timing," Taylor Duckworth wrote, although the cheetah video was posted two days before the incident in the gorilla exhibit.
Still, some commenters defended the zoo for sharing the video, including Stephan Swain: "Sure, they want to move on. They didn't gain a thing from the gorilla incident," he wrote. "This is a step forward and footage that's pretty incredible. Why not celebrate that?"
