It does not have the strength or size to defend itself against a gathering of vultures, packs of hyenas, lions, or leopards. Vultures can peck at the cheetah, hyenas can overpower it with their numbers, lions can easily overpower and kill a cheetah, and leopards are strong enough to take down a cheetah. Therefore, if a cheetah is surrounded by any of these animals, it would have no way to defend itself.

It is a distinct sound that helps cheetahs maintain contact and coordinate their movements.
