only cheetah not a leapord
The plan was to re-introduce 18 cheetah in 3 different locations in India. These cheetah would be from populations in Africa. The Asiatic cheetah is believed to number less than 100 individuals and is found in Iran and Pakistan.
There are currently no wild cheetahs in India—they became extinct in that country in 1967 or 1968. India used to be home to many cheetahs, and at the time of the first cheetah being bed in captivity in the 17th century, the Mughal emperor Akbar reported that there were 10,000 cheetahs in the country during his rule. Records show that these numbers had dwindled to around 230 individuals in the 1800s and early 1900s, before the last reports of wild cheetahs in the late 1960s. Officials are eager to return cheetahs to the wild in their original habitat in India.
