Cheetah Brought In From Namibia Last Year Dies In Madhya Pradesh

One of the cheetahs who was part of the first batch of cheetahs flown into Madhya Pradesh from Namibia last year, named Sasha, has died in Madhya Pradesh.

One of the eight cheetahs that was relocated to India from Namibia died on Monday after developing a kidney infection in January. Sasha had shown signs of fatigue and weakness during a daily monitoring check and medical examination revealed that she was dehydrated and had kidney-related problems.

A blood test revealed that her creatinine levels were very high, which indicated an infection in the kidney. The other cheetahs in the park are healthy, a press release said.

Sasha, who was part of the first batch of cheetahs flown into Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park, was one of five female cheetahs flown in from Namibia last year as part of an ambitious reintroduction programme.

The cheetah was one of two five-year-old female big cats released in Kuno by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 17, which also happened to be his birthday, last year.
