Bruce Cullerton, Jaguar Mauling Victim, Killed In Belize
In a grisly attack, a jaguar that escaped from a Belize animal rescue center during the chaos of Hurricane Richard is being blamed for the maling death of American Bruce Cullerton.
The jaguar, a four-year-old named Max, was freed from the center when a tree hit his cage during the devastating impact of the hurricane, during which the entire nation lost power.
The body of the victim, which was discovered on Tuesday, was identified by Belize’s police force as Bruce Cullerton, who also holds Belizean citizenship. An American embassy official confirmed only that “a U.S. citizen died from a jaguar attack.”
