A female cheetah brought from Singapore died at the Sakkarbaug zoo in Junagadh district.

"The postmortem confirmed death due to failure of liver and kidney," zoo director V J Rana said, adding that the feline died on October 13.

Earlier, a male cheetah, also brought here from Singapore, had died in the zoo some months ago. "Sakkarbaug zoo traded three of its lions with a Singapore zoo for two pairs of cheetah in 2009," Rana said.

The African cheetahs were brought from Singapore as per a government programme initiated by the Central Zoo Authority of India, Rana added.
