Unequivocally End Jaguar Captures By Arizona

We ask the US Fish & Wildlife Service to prohibit capture of jaguars by the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD). Our request is especially relevent since the Office of Inspector General of the US Department of the Interior reported misdoings and possible criminal activity in connection with AGFD’s capture of the jaguar known as Macho B, and his subsequent death.

We applaud Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva in calling for the Service to suspend all authorization by the AGFD to manage jaguars until the situation is corrected. Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star provides further details.
