How did the Asiatic cheetah become extinct?

They are only extinct in India, it is believed that the last few survive mostly in Iran. This is why it is also known as the Iranian Cheetah. They are now classed as critically endangered animals.

Land-use change has been a major factor in the Cheetah's ecosystem: persecution, habitat degradation and fragmentation, desertification, and direct killing of wildlife that the cheetah preys upon are all factors responsible in the Cheetah's chronic decline in Iran.

They were wiped out from India due to hunting of the Cheetah and the Cheetah's prey, and it's habitat being turned into farmland.
