At the end of the battle, the jaguar lay dead with stab wounds inflicted by Clarence Bernard, who sustained severe injuries to both of his hands and one of his feet, while fighting off the vicious animal.
Bernard, who hails from Parikwarunawu Village, located some 30 miles south of Lethem, had left his village and went fishing about one mile away early Monday morning."
