Translocated Cheetah Fight At Kuno National Park, One Big Cat Injured

Kuno: One of the cheetahs translocated to the Kuno National Park, Madhya Pradesh, was injured following a skirmish between two pairs on Monday.

South African male cheetas Vayu and Agni were attacked by two younger Nambian cheetahs. All of them were in the child. The park staff managed to swiftly intervene, separating the animals to avoid further conflict.

As many as five female and three male cheetahs brought from Namibia were released into enclosures at the KNP at an event attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 17, 2022, as part of an effort to revive the extinct cheetah population in the wild in India.

Another 12 cheetahs were brought from South Africa in February 2023. Six cheetahs, including three of the four cubs born in the park, have died since March.
