The ongoing project to increase the population of cheetahs in India suffered another major setback on Thursday when two more cheetah cubs died in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park. So far, a total of six cheetahs have died in Kuno Park, including three cheetahs and three cubs. Just two days ago, on May 23, a two-month-old cheetah cub had died. All these cheetahs are brought from South African countries.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the first batch of cheetahs brought from Namibia to South Africa at Kuno National Park on the occasion of his birthday. After that, the second batch was released in the presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. After that, the total number of cheetahs here had increased to 20. Meanwhile, a mother cheetah named Jwala had given birth to four cubs, which increased the number to 24.
