Jaguar won't be euthanized after zoo attack on selfie-taking Arizona woman, officials say

12-Mar-2019

Wildlife World Zoo officials told social media users the jaguar “won’t be put down” after a woman in her 30s suffered injuries to her arm following the Saturday incident.

I see another girl with her up against the cage of the jaguar and the jaguar has clasped its claws outside of the cage around her hand and into her flesh," Wilkerson told the news station. Wilkerson said his mother threw a water bottle into the cage to distract the jaguar just enough for her to let go of the woman’s arm.

Friday 04:15 GMT

It did not permit him to spend money that Congress had not authorized, nor could he as president exercise any powers that the Constitution delegated to Congress.

He and his Republican colleagues in Congress have argued that Congress has given all presidents since 1976 new powers in emergencies. This is not possible under our system of constitutional government, even if all concerned did look the other way with a wink and a nod.

Trump 'wall' in desolate stretch of New Mexico has some asking: Why...

Saturday 11:44 GMT

The 18-foot-tall steel slats extend 20 miles across the rugged Chihuahuan desert in southern New Mexico, cutting through high sand dunes and brush.
