Tiger from Ranthambore enters Kuno; officials say no threat to cheetahs but monitoring closely

A tiger from Ranthambore Reserve has entered Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh, India, where three types of big cats now reside. The tiger had been attempting to make a home near the Chambal River in Sheopur district since November 2022. Half a dozen tigers from Ranthambore have entered Kuno at different times in the past eight years, but none have made it their home. The park has three cheetahs in the wild and 19 in an enclosure. The government of India started the National Cheetah Translocation Project to reintroduce cheetahs to the country.
