Abstract: 
A three-month old jaguar was among the many caged animals recently on display next to a railroad in Buaran, East Jakarta. The jaguar, originally from South America, is listed as an endangered species by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or CITES, which Indonesia ratified in 1978. CITES prohibits the international trade in jaguars, except for noncommercial purposes such as scientific research.
