New cat in the neighborhood!

TUCSON, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Video of the only-known wild jaguar living in the United States was released on Wednesday.

Conservation CATalyst and the Center for Biological Diversity released the video, which shows 'El Jefe' roaming the remote areas of the Santa Rita Mountains near Tucson. This is the first ever publicly released video of the jaguar.
'El Jefe'

Without a mate, they'll die off anyway. Digging deeper, I think that this will turn into an anti-Rosemont Mine (already has) and anti-border wall ploy.

Handsome cat, though.

Fortunately, it is now a properly "documented immigrant"!

That is one beautiful animal. It's amazing that it's made it this long without being trapped or killed.

Years ago while canoeing the Upper Canyons in Big Bend National Park, we spent a night on a sandbar on the Mexican side of the river, sleeping on the ground. Woke up the next morning to find big cat prints all around our campsite. The cat had 'inspected' everyone.

I have always wondered if it may have been a jaguar instead of a mountain lion. Wish I had taken a picture of the prints.

A moratorium on hunting leopard has just been signed in South Africa. This is to give Nature Conservation the time needed to attempt to make an estimate of the numbers in the wild. Leopards are such secretive animals that it is extremely difficult to guess their populations. They can live successfully in close proximity to humans without discovery, preying on domestic pets and free range chickens and other farm animals. Farmers will still be able to shoot problem animals, but sport hunting is stopped for the mean time. No one is too unhappy about this because we need to get a handle on numbers before realistic quotas can be allocated. The difficulty of course is getting the needed information. I suspect the numbers will never be known, but hunting will resume when the off take of dogs, cats , goats, chicken, sheep and children becomes unmanageable.
