Wow!- there is a Wild Jaguar Living in the U.S.

el jefe jaguarApparently Jaguars commonly roamed the Southwestern United States before 150 years of encroaching settlement wiped them out. It’s been untold years since there was documentation of one living here full time, though some had been spotted here on sporadic occasions, but those were apparently just visiting. The current Jaguar has been spotted several times in the mountains just outside Tuscon, AZ, and appears to be an established resident for more than 3 years. The locals have taken to calling him El Jefe, and now conservationists have released video footage of The Chief, right here in the United States. He really is magnificent, and approaching 250 pounds, the third largest cat in the world behind tigers and lions.
