Belize Big Cat Kills Yank

A jaguar that escaped from its cage at a Belize animal rescue center during Hurricane Richard fatally mauled an American whose body was found yesterday, officials said.

Belize’s national police identified the victim as Bruce Cullerton, who held US and Belizean citizenship. Authorities found the victim’s body near the animal center on Tuesday. They did not say where he lived.

The 4-year-old cat, named Max, escaped when a tree fell on his cage Sunday, the same day the Category 1 hurricane hit the Central American country’s Caribbean coast with howling winds and rain.
