One of the 8 cheetahs died of kidney ailment
Notably, the development comes three days after one of the cheetahs, named Sasha, died due to a kidney infection. The death was seen as a major setback for Project Cheetah, which aims to revive the population of the animal in India after seven decades of extinction. Furthermore, 12 more cheetahs were brought to KNP from South Africa last month.
