Rare “El Jefe” tigers that roamed Arizona were spotted across the border

Biologists say {that a} well-known jaguar that roamed the mountains of southern Arizona for a number of years earlier than disappearing in 2015, it appeared greater than 100 miles south in Mexico.

Mexican nonprofit group Profauna mentioned this week that the large cat often called El Jefe was photographed in an undisclosed mountain location in central Sonora as a part of the Borderlands Linkages initiative. This programme, through which a number of teams on either side of the border are concerned and led by the Wildlands Community, displays greater than 150 motion-sensitive wildlife cameras within the space.

El Jefe, or “The Boss,” nicknamed by Tucson center faculty college students, has been photographed a number of instances within the mountains south of Tucson at a time when the one confirmed jaguar roaming the wild in the USA. Two different males have since been photographed in Arizona, although each later disappeared, and considered one of them appeared poached in Mexico.
