What happened to Macho B. is criminal. I’m glad people have resigned but we that won’t bring the last jaguar in America back to life. That won’t undo the horrific suffering he went through in that trap and before he died. Damn them all.

The Arizona Daily Star filed a lawsuit Wednesday in federal court against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service seeking the criminal investigation documents into the capture and death of a jaguar known as Macho B.
The jaguar died in March 2009 after it was captured in Southern Arizona by state Department of Game and Fish employees who were doing a joint bear-mountain lion study with the wildlife service, according to the lawsuit.
At the time, Macho B was the last known wild jaguar in the United States. The $3 million bear-lion study was “designed to capture and place radio collars on the mountain lions and bears to monitor and document their movements and range,” states the lawsuit.
