March 3, 2009—The first wild jaguar to be caught in the U.S. was recaptured just a few weeks later on Monday and put to sleep the same day, wildlife officials said…

…The jaguar, named Macho B, was caught accidentally on February 18 during a research study on black bears and cougars….

… Jaguars, once common throughout the southern United States, were mostly killed off by the early 1900s.
