The only known wild jaguar in the United States has been captured roaming around a creek and other parts of a mountain range near Tucson, Arizona.
Watch the first publicly released video of the giant cat.
“El Jefe” – “the Boss” – has been living in the Santa Rita Mountains about 25 miles south of downtown Tucson for over three years.
The Boss is about 7 years old and is one of only four or five jaguars that have been spotted in the U.S. in the last 20 years. He’s the only documented wild jaguar in the country.
Hopefully this video will inspire people to care about these animals and support protection for their homes and not launch a giant hunt to get its scalp and fur.
