Senseless, idiotic behaviour (and I'm not even talking about the shooting) ...I sometimes regularly despair of the human race:

Who on earth thought it would be in any way a good idea to get a Jaguar to 'carry' a flaming torch?????

Horrifying. I really question a lot of our species when I see things like that.  I'd love to have been a fly on the wall at the meeting where that was decided.  "Yeah, let's have a jaguar carry an open flame along the torch route."  Duh.

Read this and couldn´t quite believe it. Very sad this animal had to die because of this insane stupidity.

I'm amazed at the incredible stupidity and cruelty which was displayed in this most unfortunate incident. Why did this magnificent animal have to die so needlessly?
