Baby Jaguar Was Hiding The Saddest Secret In Her Body

She was found alone in the forest, unable to move.



D'Yaria was probably terrified as she rode in the back of a pickup truck. Not only had the 11-month-old jaguar been taken from her home in the Ecuadorian forest, she was also badly injured.

Last October, people had shot her several times — 18 shotgun pellets were lodged inside her tiny body. D'Yaria could move her head and neck a bit and she could definitely still growl, but the rest of her body had become paralyzed.

Farmers in Shushufindi, Ecuador, had shot D'Yaria — at least that's what María Cristina Cely, a veterinarian with Darwin Animal Doctors, anorganization that helps animals, believes happened.


"This is an area where people have cattle, and jaguars are known for going into farms and killing cattle, so what the locals do is just kill the jaguars to preserve the cattle," Cely told The Dodo. "It's very sad."


Cely believes that D'Yaria's mom was shot too, and killed. Otherwise, she'd still be with her baby.

After being shot, D'Yaria probably ran into the forest until she couldn't run anymore. Then she collapsed. She might have felt safe there for a while, but D'Yaria was in bad shape.


"If she had not been found and she had not been treated, she would have not survived," Cely said. "She was paralyzed and she would not have been able to drink water and not be able to hunt or find food for herself."


Luckily for D'Yaria, help quickly came. Local people walking through the forest found her, and they figured out exactly what to do — they loaded the jaguar onto the back of a pickup truck, and transported her to an animal hospital at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador's capital, which was a five-hour drive away.

When D'Yaria arrived at the hospital, a vet team led by Dr. Andrés Ortega worried that D'Yaria wouldn't make it — she was just too badly injured. If she pulled through, they didn't think she'd ever walk again.

Despite the odds being stacked against D'Yaria, the vet team tried their best.

"She needed two main surgeries to remove the pellets and the areas that were damaged in her spine," Cely said. "That damage was able to be fixed by removing the little cushion between the two vertebrae in the neck."

After the surgeries, the vet team watched D'Yaria carefully. When they noticed that she was able to move her legs, they knew she was going to be OK.

"She stood up and she started showing signs that she would not stay still, and that's when everyone realized that she was going to make it," Cely said.

Each day, D'Yaria got a little stronger. While her injuries healed, she had to stay in a small cage at the vet hospital. But the staff kept her entertained by giving her shredded paper, which she had fun playing in, according to Cely.

After about a month, D'Yaria was moved to a large outdoor enclosure at a nature park in Lago Agrio, Ecuador.

"At this point, she's 95 percent recovered and she runs around," Cely said. "She's running like it's the last day of her life."

The vet team is certain that D'Yaria will be able to be released back into the wild. This is good news for D'Yaria, but also good news for her species, which is currently listed as "near threatened" on the IUCN Red List for Threatened Species.

In anticipation of D'Yaria's release, the team has been careful not to get her used to people.




*This image is copyright of its original author



"Her contact with humans will be very controlled in the way that she does not recognize a human as a benefactor or as a carer," Cely said. "In fact, during her time in the hospital, she hated humans. She would growl every time she got checkups."

"Now, at the enclosure in the jungle, every time somebody gets close, she throws herself against the cage and pretends she's going to attack that person," Cely added. "This is a very good sign."

"D'Yaria means brave tiger, and that's what she's shown," Cely said. "She's everything that her name says. She's a very brave little jaguar. She fought all the way. The team has a lot of hope that she was recover 100 percent, and that she will be set free. And everyone is looking forward to seeing her grow up and being a full-grown jaguar and having little jaguars."

D'Yaria will eventually be released in the Tiputini Biodiversity Station, and she'll be fitted with a special radio collar to help keep her safe. To help fund this tracking collar, you can make a donation via Darwin Animal Doctors.

Sad news. RIP the king of Bandipur.... but i dn't see a natural death in this... and certainly doesnot look like a wildboar feast, not only the snout but most of the dense facial  bones are missing. This a strange death but seems most like accidental 'meat bomb' as quoted.

Dude..sorry but this is downright dumb...just some posture & angle differences leading to some stripe pattern being covered..You haven't even given the effort of verifying it properly, did u?!
Well try his visible sides & back, it's a perfect match... Sad

I didn't wanna believe it either..But living in denial won't help.
Only if the tuth is accepted will steps be taken & other tigers sill be safer from bomb traps...


RE: Bigcats News - Roflcopters - 04-15-2017

this looks like a clear case of poaching, jaw trap is a strong possibility and the fact that Forest department tried to cover this. very unfortunate, Raja didn't deserve to die like this.

This is sick man, if this was poachers, what part of the tigers do they want, like the teeth or something.  It definitely looks like foul play, sick mothers.


RE: Bigcats News - Rishi - 04-15-2017

@Garfield it wasn't organised poachers. The region has dozens of villages of local forest dependent communities who sometimes hunt for bush-meat when times are tough.
Someone of them probably tried to grt creative & did the blunder.

Forest Dept. probably understood & is looking for him, they don't often release a statement in these kind of cases as then they'll have to arrest a sole bread-winner of a starving family & have whole tribes upset.

Hopefully a "visit" to his house will see an end to it in that region, atleast for a few years...

Concerned wildlife enthusiasts organised a peaceful protest against the way T222's death was handled. The department has been working hard to sweep this entire episode under carpet. There have been lies after lies starting from ID of the tiger. The protesters demanded complete transparency and accountability, with thorough probe. It is important to note that this landscape has highest number of tiger mortality in this year.
The campaigners also sought proactive measures to reduce incidents of man made fires and other conflict situations.
We appreciate their efforts and wish them all the success in this campaign

Its been a year since Jai went missing from UKWLS, the department still doesn't have the answers, or they don't want to reveal it to the people. Lets see what all has happened in the last year since he went missing :-
The Forest Minister said that Jai is still alive and he will be found soon - No result till date
The Chief Minister promised a CID probe in the missing of this iconic tiger - Result - The CID is still awaiting probe orders from CM's office
Rumours spread like wild fire that Jai was sighted in Telangana- Result > The staffers had seen a tiger in the night, they weren't even sure if it was a male or a female, let alone it being IDed as Jai
A independent probe initiated by Centre - Result > No report in the public domain as yet
A independent investigation by NTCA - Result > The report hasn't been released in the public domain yet.
The reward offered by this group for whereabouts of Jai - No Result, no one saw this tiger after 18th of April.
What loss has his absence created
- Tourism is at its all time low
- The entry from atlas two of the gates is almost nil
- Not much sightings inside park
- Livelihood of locals majorly affected
- Those who bought new vehicles after the compulsory Gypsy norm, are not being able to serve EMIs
- Resorts running dry, staff being fired
- Revenue loss to the forest department
Since a year has passed without any trace of him, it is safe to assume that Jai is no more. As per the FD version, some other tiger will take up his place, lets see when does that happen.

It's also confirmed that Raja's canines were taken, it's looking more and more like this was poaching

A bomb burst inside his mouth, isn't that supposed to not leave the canines in a takable state..??

Most likely wasn't blown off but chopped off.
http://starofmysore.com/princes-chopped-off-snout-found-missing-canines/

His face was found a few 100 meters from his body, chopped off with his canines missing.


It looks like a cover up, they probably didn't want the failed protection of their most famous tiger getting out and that's why they burned the body so quickly and claimed "animals ate his face"
