This is a mild case of mishandling but it is clear. The jaguar cub is clearly unhappy with being handled at all, and especially like this. The cub’s forelegs are flaying around while she’s trying to struggle free and complains vocally. One of the studio presenters remarks that the cub is purring! No, sorry but that is pretty obviously wrong. This is a melanistic jaguar by the way. A black panther. This is not a typical jaguar coat.
