African cheetahs at Kuno National Park make first kill

After 51 days in India, including two days in a special prey-stocked enclosure where they were released inside Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park, two cheetahs from Africa made history by making their first kill during the intervening night of November 6-7.  The two male cheetahs, ‘Freddy’ and ‘Elton’, had been released from quarantine on the evening of November 5 into the bigger enclosure that is stocked with natural prey base. They brought down a cheetal stag (spotted deer). The milestone is significant in the process of introducing of cheetahs at Kuno because it indicates that the wild cats are willing to adapt to their new home.
