Jaguar seen in the United States, taken by a camera from Fort Huachuca, 120 km southeast of Tucson.

It seems it's a different individual from the one called El Jefe.

There are Jaguars in Panama but they seem to be facing tough times

Sad News: 26 Jaguars Killed in Panama This Year


Their findings, published in the Journal for Nature Conservation and presented at the 20th Congress of the Mesoamerican Society for Biology and Conservation, showed that jaguars in Panama were being killed by a wide range of people, from tour guides to livestock owners. Oftentimes, the killings were done in retaliation for the jaguars' predation on their cattle, sheep, and dogs.
"We have evidence that cattle ranchers killed a minimum of 230 jaguars in Panama between 1989 and 2014," said Ricardo Moreno, research associate at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama and one of the authors of the study, in a statement. "We have reason to think that the actual number may be two- or three- times higher. In 2015, 23 jaguars were killed. In 2016, through September, 26 jaguars were killed."

Moreno, who is also the director of Yaguará Panamá Foundation, speculates that the expanding agricultural and urban areas in the region and new developmental projects such as dams and mines are forcing jaguar populations to settle in steep mountainous areas. Additionally, the increasing human consumption of white-lipped peccary, which is one of the primary diets of jaguars, are forcing the big cat to prey on domesticated animals.
For the study, the researchers collected camera-trap survey data from 15 national parks and forest fragments on both sides of the Panama Canal in 2005 to 2014. Using two sites in the intact Darién National Park in Eastern Panama as reference, the researchers compared the mammal species richness and evenness and structurally-complex mammal communities.

Guatemala
The Wildlife Conservation Society has released a photograph of a male jaguar taken by a remote camera trap in Guatemala's Maya Biosphere. Reserve.http://www.sciencedaily.com/releas…/2013/…/130528160916.htm…



A Jaguar is dead... a sad news of our centre of refuge of wild animals in Guatemala: " on Monday, 27 October, during the night, the refuge has collected a jaguar adult male about 2 years ago. The Animal suffered multiple injuries caused by a firearm. He was in hypothermia, dehydrated and in a state of shock. Despite all the efforts of our team of veterinarians, his condition could not be stabilized and he died of a heart attack an hour and twenty minutes after his arrival at the shelter."

The Wildlife Conservation Society today released this photograph of a male jaguar taken by a remote camera trap in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve. Activated by motion or heat differentials, camera traps “capture” pictures of secretive and elusive animals in the wild. Because each jaguar’s pattern of spots is unique, the photographs can be used to identify individuals and estimate abundance…

"¿Sabías que el jaguar puede identificarse por su patrón único de manchas? Foto con una cámara trampa del gran Arr en Portobelo. Este hermoso jaguar lo mataron el 13 de agosto de 2014, por esto es imperativo crear conciencia sobre la importancia del jaguar y por qué es necesaria su conservación. Aquí puedes leer más sobre el nuevo proyecto para su conservación financiado por la ANAM: http://bit.ly/1xMgw7t"

New jaguar photographed in Southern Arizona; third seen here since '11
By Tony Davis Arizona Daily Star Mar 2, 2017 Updated Mar 2, 2017  

*This image is copyright of its original author

A new jaguar has been documented to exist in Southern Arizona — the second in the past four months and the third since 2011.

It's the seventh jaguar documented to have been in the Southwest since 1996, after only one was known to occur in this region in the previous 20 years.

The jaguar was photographed on Nov. 16 in the Dos Cabezas Mountains in Cochise County, about 60 miles north of the U.S.-Mexican border, Arizona Game and Fish officials said in a news release Thursday morning. The jaguar's sex couldn't be determined by the photo, taken on a U.S. Bureau of Land Management-owned trail camera, Game and Fish said.

The photo was only recently retrieved and is the only jaguar photo the BLM camera has taken since the agency installed it last August, Game and Fish said.

By analyzing this photo and comparing its spot patterns with other jaguars photographed in the state, five Arizona Game and Fish scientists have independently concluded this animal hasn't been previously identified, the state agency said.

In the news release, Game and Fish also said the male jaguar photographed in the Huachuca Mountains in late 2016 was photographed there again in January of this year. A second male jaguar was photographed in the Whetstone Mountains in 2011 and repeatedly photographed in the Santa Rita Mountains from fall 2012 through fall 2015.

From 1996 through 2009 when jaguar Macho B was euthanized, two male jaguars were documented in Southern Arizona, one in southwest New Mexico and a fourth at the Arizona-New Mexico border.

A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, Steve Spangle, said that an increase in the use of trail cameras since 2012 has triggered an increase in jaguar documentations and a better understanding of jaguar presence and habitat preferences.

New images of wild jaguar captured in southern Arizona

Video footage by Russ McSpadden / Center for Biological Diversity
TUCSON – New images were released Friday of one of the wild jaguars roaming southern Arizona.
Sombra, the jaguar named by students at Paulo Freire Freedom School, was first seen wandering into the Grand Canyon State from Mexico in Nov. 2016. The giant feline was recently spotted, prompting the U.S. Fish and Wild Service to release new photos of the male jaguar.

Sombra is one of three male jaguars observed wandering around southern Arizona since 2015.
El Jefe and Yo’oko are the other two jaguars who were seen.  Yo’oko was killed in 2018 after he was caught in a mountain lion hunter’s trap in Mexico. El Jefe is believed to have traveled back into Mexico in search of a mate.
For more informations about the jaguars, visit biologicaldiversity.org.
