Cheetahs are the fastest land mammal in the world at 75 MPH. Greyhounds come in a distant second as the second fastest land mammal at 45 MPH. But … what if they were to race each other on a track?
Impossible, you say? Then travel back in time with us to 1937 for the great cheetah and greyhound races at Rumford Greyhound Stadium in England. That’s when, and where, it happened. You may be surprised.
Be sure to see photos of the cheetah and greyhound races here.
