All three cheetahs released in the larger enclosure are males. Now there are 5 female cheetahs left in small enclosures. All these will be released in the big enclosure after the necessary quarantine. The two cheetahs that were first released into the larger enclosure are brothers. The officials of Kuno National Park are keeping an eye on how the third cheetah is adjusting with these two. Officers are also continuously inspecting small enclosures. All 8 cheetahs were brought from Namibia. After this, there is a plan to bring cheetahs from South Africa as well.
The cheetahs were brought to Kuno on 17 September by a special plane from Namibia. Then PM Narendra Modi had released them in small enclosures. Cheetahs were being fed cooked meat in small enclosures. Many people had expressed apprehension whether cheetahs would be able to hunt after being released in a large enclosure! However, both the cheetahs released on November 5 proved by hunting that they can adapt themselves to new conditions. Please tell that the Government of India wants to bring a total of 50 cheetahs and leave them in different forests of the country. Earlier Asiatic cheetahs were found in India, but they became extinct due to hunting.
