The Return of the Great American Jaguar | Science | Smithsonian An interesting article on the semi-resident wild jaguar who inhabits the mountains just south of my city of Tucson (Arizona, USA). The painted mural shown in the article is about a mile from my home. The article is decidedly biased, painting the lead character as a victim and the US Fish and Wildlife Service and University of Arizona as unsympathetic and anti-environmental agencies. This all may be true, or maybe it is exaggerated. Interesting read nonetheless.
