The Arizona Game and Fish Department received new information today concerning the events surrounding the Feb. 18 initial capture of the jaguar known as Macho B.
  
As a result, Larry Voyles, the director of the department, has ordered a full formal investigation to determine the validity of the new information.
  
“This agency is committed to a thorough review of all facts and circumstances related to the original capture,” said Voyles. “The department’s investigative protocol requires careful protection of relevant information pending an outcome, but once the process concludes, we will disclose information to the extent allowable by law.” 
  
The department has informed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service of the latest information.
  
“The department has briefed me on the information it received today, and we fully support the department’s decision to investigate this matter,” said Dr. Benjamin Tuggle, regional director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s southwest region.
