India’s cheetah reintroduction project has suffered another blow – the death of a 10th cheetah in less than a year. The cheetah, which was brought from Namibia in September 2022, has died at the Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh. With the death of Shaurya, seven adult cheetahs and three cubs born in India have died since March 2023. In a statement, the director of the project overseeing the cheetah relocation said the cause of the death could only be ascertained after post-mortem. According to India Today, a total of 20 animals were relocated from Namibia and South Africa to Kuno National Park in two batches under the government’s Project Cheetah. The first batch came in September 2022 and the second in February 2023. The animals have been extinct in the country since 1952. Sreoshi Mukherjee has more.
