One more cheetah has died at the Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh, making it the ninth feline to die since March, according to a statement from the state forest department.

“This morning, one of the female cheetahs — Dhatri (Tbilisi) — was found dead. A post-mortem is being conducted to determine the cause of death,” the statement reads.

Fourteen cheetahs — seven males, six females and a female cub — are kept in enclosures in Kuno. A team comprising Kuno wildlife veterinarians and a Namibian expert regularly monitors their health.
