A Little About Roy the Puma

Posted in Bolivia at 5:14 am by Jackson Lee

Born in early October, Roy is a classic Libran. As his zodiac symbol implies, he leans towards an easy and uncomplicated life which, being a puma of strict routine, he achieves through methodical patrolling of his territory and messing with the minds of volunteers. Named after a Samoan New Zealander who built his cage, Roy likes walking in the forest, moonlight dinners and wildlife watching.
In November 2002, at 6 weeks of age, having survived the death of his mother and brother during his abduction, Roy was bought and given as a gift to a teacher in Sucre: at this point Inti Wara Yassi learned of his situation and confiscated him to Parque Machia. Seven years later, Roy has grown to become a semi-domesticated puma with a healthy, predictable (which helps when avoiding jump
attempts) and serious personality.

Cute and Dangersous?
