Animal speeds

There has been much controversy over the top speeds of
animals over the years. No-one can seem to agree on just how fast
a cheetah is, and although more recent attempts claim to have a
definitive answer, well, we've heard that before. The same seems
to be true of elephants in recent postings. What I want to know
is: given the problems associated with the usual methods of
calculating speed, has anyone ever bothered to just point an accurate
radar gun, or an equivalent laser device, at the things?
