Rare “El Jefe” tigers have been spotted roaming Arizona 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 stated this week that the massive cat generally known as El Jefe was photographed in an undisclosed mountain location in central Sonora as a part of the Borderlands Linkages initiative. This programme, wherein a number of teams on either side of the border are concerned and led by the Wildlands Community, screens greater than 150 motion-sensitive wildlife cameras within the space.

El Jefe, or “The Boss,” nicknamed by Tucson center college college students, has been photographed a number of occasions 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 one among them appeared poached in Mexico.
