Man Shoots & Kills Brother in Belize While Hunting Jaguar


A young man is fatally shot as he and his two brothers hunted for a jaguar believed to have been killing their animals.

BELMOPAN, Belize, Tuesday December 28, 2010 – The hunt for a jaguar that was killing a family’s cattle in Belize has ended in tragedy with one brother being fatally shot.

Cesar Cak, 18, died on the spot after being shot in the chest and abdomen by his oldest brother, 25-year-old Ricardo.

According to police, Cesar, Ricardo and another brother, Augusto, left their home and went to a pasture about a mile away in search of a jaguar they believe had been killing their chickens, ducks, pigs and cattle.

They spotted the animal in the wee hours of the morning and pursued it into the bushes. The three split up, taking different trails, and it was while on their separate searches that Ricardo fired his gun, hitting Cesar.

The teenager died on the spot.

Although the shooting has been viewed as an accident, police are carrying out investigations into the incident.
