Jaguar Shot at Olympics

Godspeed, Juma.

A jaguar named Juma was shot and killed just moments after it participated in an Olympic torch ceremony on Monday in the Brazilian Amazon city of Manaus.

The incident occurred after the jaguar became stressed at the event and escaped its handlers.

Although sad there is a sense of irony in the situation as the official mascot of the Rio Olympics is a jaguar.  That cat is named Ginga.

Godspeed, Juma.

You will be missed.
