In 2009, the Arizona Fish and Wildlife Department captured a live JAGUAR, see picture below. Fish and Wildlife then decided to tagged the Jaguar with an electronic monitor and let it lose. This is called capture and release. Why, because they are more interested in protecting wildlife than ranchers, farmers, and the general public. The Arizona wildlife group says Jaguar's are an endangered species – who cares? Jaguars believe it or not once roomed the southwest until ranchers eradicated the predator vermin in 1972. And, they are damn dangerous. In addition, the Fish and Wildlife Department says there actually may be two of these predators wondering around Arizona, which if that is true, and one is a male and one female by now we have serious problems. This is the kind of nonsense your tax dollars are spent on.
Jaguars are a real danger to hunters, campers, fisherman, and hikers. Predators such as Jaguars kill ranchers stock which causes higher consumer prices.
Now you know why I say never ever for any reason wonder into the desert or mountains without a gun. I carry a 45 with a combo rotated with hollow points and solid lead jacketed bullets. See it, shoot it, because it will attack and kill you.
