Namibian cheetah flown to India dies in Madhya Pradesh from kidney disease
Bijaipur/IBNS: One of the eight cheetahs relocated to India from Namibia died on Monday in Madhya Pradesh's Kuno National Park after developing a kidney infection in January.
The dead cheetah 'Sasha' had shown signs of fatigue and weakness during a daily monitoring check.
A medical examination revealed that she was dehydrated and had kidney-related problems.
A blood test on her 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.
