Cheetah Daksha: South African female cheetah killed by two male coalition in Kuno National Park | India News

BHOPAL: A female South African cheetah named Daksha died in an infighting with two male cheetahs inside Kuno National Park in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday.
“The Phinda Adult Male Coalition consisting of Vayu and Agni, also known as the White Walkers, had a violent interaction with the Phinda Adult Female, Daksha. Regrettably, Daksha lost her life in this incident” said an officer associated with the project.
It is not unusual for male cheetahs to exhibit aggressive behavior towards each other, as well as towards females, he said.
Cheetahs killing other cheetahs account for 8% of cheetah mortality in the Southern African metapopulation.
Kuno has lost three cheethas since the first batch was released in September 2022.
