Namibian cheetah Sasha died due to a kidney ailment on Monday at Madhya Pradesh's Kuno National Park, a top forest department official said. 

The more than four-and-a-half years old female cheetah was among the eight cheetahs translocated from Namibia and housed in the KNP in Sheopur district since September 17. 

"Cheetah Sasha passed away due to a kidney problem as her creatinine level was very high," principal chief conservator of forest-wildlife JS Chauhan said. 

The feline was not keeping well since her arrival more than 6 month ago and was recently taken back to a quarantine enclosure at the KNP for treatment, he said. 

Sasha's creatinine level was above 400 (an indicator of poor kidney function) which resulted in her death, Chauhan added. -- PTI
