Shivpuri: Officials at Kuno National Park in Shivpuri are gearing up to wecoming 12 Cheetahs from South Africa. The big cats will be brought to the national park on January 10.

Cheetahs are main attraction at the Kuno Sanctuary.

Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Prakash Verma said a discussion was held between the Indian government and the South African government to bring 12 Cheetahs and adequate preparations have been made.

Six enclosures had already been made and additional eight enclosures were built for the Cheetahs who will soon arrive at the park. The cheetahs will be quarantined before being released.
