Namibian Cheetah Sasha Dies Due To Kidney Ailment At Kuno National Park


Kuno: Namibian cheetah Sasha died due to a kidney ailment on Monday at Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park (KNP), a top forest department official said.

The more than four-and-a-half years old female cheetah was among the eight cheetahs translocated from Namibia and housed in the KNP in Sheopur district since September 17.

“Cheetah Sasha passed away due to a kidney problem as her creatinine level was very high,” Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (PCCF-Wildlife) JS Chauhan.

The feline was not keeping well since her arrival more than 6 month ago and was recently taken back to a quarantine enclosure at the KNP for treatment, he said.

Sasha’s creatinine level was above 400 (an indicator of poor kidney function) which resulted in her death, Chauhan added.
