Animals, Escape, Fox, Watercooler, Zoo

Jaguar escaped from the zoo and killed a bunch of animals and now I’m sad!

Not Valerio, but you get it.

An adult male jaguar escaped his enclosure at a Louisiana zoo and killed six other animals Saturday. 

Valerio the jaguar, age three, was born in San Diego and moved to New Orleans in 2017. He killed four alpacas, an emu, and a fox before being subdued by zoo authorities. 

In cases like this, a zoo may consider putting down the animal in question, but Valerio will not be.

Despite sympathy for the lost animals, many online couldn’t blame Valerio for doing what jaguars do.

Maybe Valerio learned something. 

That, or he’s back in his enclosure, plotting his next escape. We hope for the sake of the zoo’s remaining alpaca population that he’s not. 8ee7 0d79%2fthumb%2f00001
