    One female baby jaguar was rescued after some hunters killed her mother:mad::mad:, the baby was taken to Corporinoquia (the environmental organisation of the región), because the baby was so Young and it needed great care it couldnt be released into the wild, and the decision was to send it to an experienced zoo, the Cali Zoo.
    Actually the female is off-exhibit and taken care off at the veterinary área.

    Here are some links to the pictures of the baby.

    Very sad (but very cute in photos). Hopefully she will be bred to increase the diversity of the captive gene pool.
