This is stupidity taking a wild animal and releasing them some where they don't usually live. This is dangerous for the cheetahs and the other wildlife in this area. Hope the introduction doesn't happen. Thanks Cher.

He is right- the Cheetah is native to Africa- not Inda. It is an alien species and will be in direct conflict with the big cats native to India- the Leopard and Tiger.

India is not a good place to reintroduce aimals. They kill them. Why do they that?

noted and very interesting. i do not think it is a very good idea, especially because there are other big cats already living there.
