Default Killing of the Last US Jagaur

Arizona Intentionally Snared Last Jaguar, Inquiry Finds

Quote:
As a result of Game and Fish's bungling, Macho B was killed in 2009. The Center has sued the agency to prevent additional capturing and killing of jaguars.

That's nice that they sued the agency but they're a day late and a dollar short. That was the only one out there. Way to go finding this milkweed. This came up a while ago and I wondered what REALLY happened, Rare Jaguars Spotted in Arizona and Mexico

I hadn't seen the prevous post. I wasn't a member then.
I had read about the jaguars in Path of the Jaguars — National Geographic Magazine

Its a shame to think it was probably dead when this article came out.

Being a citizen of the state of Arizona I can site yet another case of government hyprocrisy . Something I continually have to deal with is the trapping of feral/stray dogs . I primarily rely on a box style trap which is not always adequate . I found myself on the phone with some officers of the Arizona Game and fish . Box traps are legal as are leg hold traps , ANY version of snare trap while not forbiden to trap dogs with . If in the case of setting/using a snare type trap one (a citizen) was to incendentally/accidendtly catch ANY wild/game type animal , a citizen here would be subject to heavy fines and or imprisonment . Snare traps being regarded as too dangerous .

Just LOVE the government , do as I say , not as I do .

The Death of Macho B


Quote:
Just last month, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was ordered by a federal court to develop a recovery plan for wild jaguars in the United
States and to designate a "critical habitat" area for the cat's well-being. It was the reversal of a long-standing refusal by the Bush administration to take efforts to protect the jaguar.

Jaguars evolved in North America before moving south to colonize Central and South America thousands of years ago. Historically, they were reported from California to the Carolinas. But clearing of forests, draining of wetlands, and introduction of livestock -- coupled with shooting, trapping, and poisoning -- pushed jaguars out of the United States.
Quote:
After a decade-long fight for the survival of jaguars in the United States, the Center for Biological Diversity won a court ruling last year to protect North America's largest native big cat. Now, in response to the Center's extensive litigation, the Fish and Wildlife Service has announced it will designate critical habitat for the jaguar. This is excellent news for the endangered big cat -- but the question of where the jaguar's critical habitat will be located remains unanswered.
