El Jefe - Santa Rita jaguar

Post by PaleoRob »

CBD just released footage of a male jaguar roaming in the Santa Ritas. Hopefully he won't suffer the same mismanaged fate as Macho B.

@Rob del Desierto
Very cool! I found this wording a little strange in the article...
Macho B was euthanized as a result of capture-related injuries in March 2009
I guess "capture related injuries" is a nice way to say negligence and poor handling :?

Way cool!

I told some of my friends in Utah about Macho B, and how there was a small population of Jaguar in AZ. Their response was "You mean Mountain Lions?" My response, "No, a Jaguar."

They all thought I was extremely stupid. Joke is on them now.

All they'd have had to do was to whip out their cell phones and do a search. Joke's on them, dumb donkeys.

This makes me so happy. I have had a photo of Macho B on my fridge for years.

Nice article on El Jefe here:
http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-n ... -180960443

He's been taking down black bears :o (which should please the FS overlords on the Super Trail :lol: )

And apparently he's got some swollen parts, so they think he's back in Mexico looking for a suitable partner to help out with that! :)

El Jefe lives! :y:
El Jefe’s fate had been unknown for seven years, but today several Mexican nonprofits ... announced that he’d been spotted in central Sonora, 120 miles south of his last recorded sighting in Arizona.
