 On the eve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday, 8 cheetahs were brought from Namibia and were released in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park. After that, a claim went viral on the internet that it was claimed that 400 deer were to be sent from Rajasthan for the food of these 8 cheetahs.

Regarding this, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in charge of Rajasthan Vinay Mishra wrote- “Modi government will send 400 deer from Rajasthan for cheetahs of Namibia. Deer for Bishnoi samaj are like a son; they raise them in their laps. Deer are in the state of extinction in Rajasthan. The central government should take care of the public sentiments of the environment-loving Bishnoi society and forbid it.” (English Translation)

To analyze the reality of the viral claim DFRAC team searched some common keywords. The team found a tweet from the Department of Forest of Madhya Pradesh refusing the viral claim, it was said that there are a large number of chitals in Kuno National Park. Chital is not required to be brought here from other places or States and has not been brought.

Similarly, in a press release of the Public Relations Department of Madhya Pradesh, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) Jasbir Singh Chauhan said that there are a large number of chitals in the forests of Madhya Pradesh. At present, there are 30,000 chitals in National Park Kanha, 50,000 in Pench, 30,000 in Bandhavgarh, and 10,000 in Satpura National Park. Sanjay National Park and Nauradehi Sanctuary have the least number of chitals. The assent of the Government of India and the concerned States is required for inter-state wildlife transfer. Due to the sufficient number of chitals in Madhya Pradesh, there is no need to bring chital from any other states.

Conclusion:

Therefore, the claim of 400 deer was sent to feed cheetahs in Kuno National Park is fake
