Uncommon jaguar ‘El Jefe’ that roamed Arizona noticed throughout the border

The jaguar known as

A jaguar that roamed southern Arizona’s mountains for a number of years earlier than disappearing in 2015 has turned up greater than 100 miles south in Mexico, conservation biologists say.

The Mexican nonprofit group Profauna mentioned this week that the large cat generally known as El Jefe had been photographed in an undisclosed mountain location of central Sonora as a part of the Borderlands Linkages Initative. That program, involving a number of teams on either side of the border and led by the Wildlands Community, screens greater than 150 motion-sensing wildlife cameras within the area.

El Jefe, or “The Boss,” named by Tucson center schoolers, was photographed quite a few instances within the mountains south of Tucson at a time when he was the one confirmed jaguar roaming wild in the USA. Two different males have since been photographed in Arizona, though each later disappeared, one among them turning up poached in Mexico.
