Jaguars are not worth it, in the US

It’s really sad, but jaguars are on the brink of extinction nearly everywhere in the American continent. Normally, this should justify to start a few positive actions to protect them. But not for the American administration. According to Nature:

The US government will not attempt to save jaguars from extinction within the formal system of the Endangered Species Act… [Cats seen in the US in recent years] do not justify a formal “recovery plan”. The agency says that it will instead work on behalf of the endangered cat with other countries south of the border that comprise the rest of the animal’s range.

Thanks G.W.Bush ! The future will remember this too.
