AGFD Macho B Internal Investigation Transcripts

Unredacted transcripts posted Nov. 4, 2016 

The Arizona Game and Fish Department in April 2010 posted redacted transcripts of AZGFD employee interviews during the Department’s internal investigation into the events surrounding the 2009 capture, recapture and euthanization of the jaguar commonly referred to as Macho B. The transcripts were posted in response to a public records request and included some portions that were redacted to avoid compromising the Department’s internal investigation or the concurrent federal investigation being conducted at that time by the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service. Both investigations are closed and no further actions are being taken. In response to a recent public records request, the Department is posting (Nov. 4, 2016) the unredacted transcripts of those interviews. A couple of the transcripts still include some redactions to comply with privacy law and legal advice.

All Department photographs made during the initial capture and recapture of Macho B continue to be available in their original and unedited form. View all 304 photos here.
