MANAUS, June 23, 2016 - File photo taken on April 23, 2013 shows the jaguar Juma resting in Manaus, Brazil. Rio 2016 organizers issued an apology on Tuesday after a jaguar that featured in an Olympic torch ceremony was shot dead in the Amazonian city of Manaus. The jaguar, which had earlier been tranquilized, was killed by a single gun shot from a soldier after it escaped from handlers, the Brazilian army said in a statement. The army said the soldier had been forced to shoot the animal to protect himself from being mauled.
