ISLAMABAD: A cheetah was spotted at Margallah Hills on Thursday, who had apparently ventured into the area to escape the cold from neighbouring Murree.
According to details, a cheetah made its way into the camps of the Department of Wildlife and Quaid-e-Azam University.
One team member of the Department of Wildlife stated that the cheetah had traveled from Murree to Margalla Hills to escape the biting cold.
“We saw the cheetah enter our camp and we beat boxes to thwart its advance. Frightened, the animal ran away from our camp,” said the member of the Department of Wildlife.
He further stated that since this was a young cheetah, it was expected that there were two of them–the other one being the mother.
“We’re quite sure the mother has also traveled with her child and is in the same area,” he said.
