The last surviving Cheetah cub among the litter of four at the Kuno National Park is in stable condition, informed the officials. The Cheetah cubs were born to Jwala, a female Cheetah who was brought from Africa for the Cheetah revival programme.
Earlier this week, three out of the four cubs had died due to health issues, an official said on Friday. Jwala, earlier known as Siyaya, gave birth to four cubs in the last week of March after being translocated from Namibia in September last year. “The fourth cub’s condition is stable. But it is very difficult to tell about the survival of any (ailing) animal. We are trying hard…,” KNP director Uttam Sharma said in response to a query. On Tuesday, another forest department official blamed the sweltering heat for the death of this cub’s three siblings. When the three cubs died on May 23, the mercury was above 45 degrees Celsius, he said, adding that the cubs were born during the hostile time of the year in terms of temperature.
