MP to allow viewing of cheetahs from this month
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that more cheetahs would be arriving at the Kuno Palpur National Park in the State soon.
Eight cheetahs from Namibia were released into the park in September last year as part of an ambitious project to revive the extinct cheetah population in the country.
Chouhan said the Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) should visit tourist attractions of Madhya Pradesh including its tiger reserves. “I will call you to see the cheetahs in February. We are allowing (tourist visits) from February,” he said
Prime Minister Narendra Modi facilitated the import of cheetahs from Namibia, Chouhan said, adding, “more cheetahs are coming from South Africa.” (Source: PTI)
