Considering the utter debacle that is India’s Tiger Conservation program, it is disheartening to learn that Minister of Environment & Forests Jairam Ramesh has vowed to reintroduce the cats, which were hunted to extinction in India 60 years ago. “The only mammal to go extinct since independence in India is [the] cheetah,” Ramesh recently said during a Parliamentany meeting. “We plan to bring the cheetah back.”

If they are safer where they are, then leave the cats in peace for their own sake!
