Spotted: First video of the only known wild jaguar in the U.S. shows 'El Jefe' roaming Arizona mount

Source: Daily Mail UK

The only known wild jaguar in the United States has been seen roaming around a creek in southern Arizona in the first publicly released video of the big cat.

'El Jefe' - Spanish for 'the boss' - has been living in the Santa Rita Mountains about 25 miles south of downtown Tucson for more than three years, according to the Center for Biological Diversity.

El Jefe is about seven years old and is one of only four or five jaguars that have been spotted in the U.S. in the last 20 years. He is the only documented wild jaguar in the country.

1. We lived outside Tucson and were immediately informed not to let cats outside because the wolves

 

would eat them. We saw them occasionally....quite a sight...smaller than I thought...real wildlife. I can totally believe this story.

2. Why the hell are they publishing this cat's location?

 

According to the article, killing jaguars was outlawed in Arizona in 1969, only two have been spotted since then, and "both were subsequently killed."

Every yahoo trophy killer will be making a beeline.
