This is not the 'second confirmed sighting in the U.S.'. The article indicates that this would be the second known jaguar present in the United States right now. It also states that several more jaguars have been present north of the border over the past two decades.

What it doesn't mention, unfortunately, is that the historic normal jaguar range of the jaguar extended into Arizona as well as New Mexico, Texas and California.

From the article:

http://www.havasunews.com/news/rare-...b4ac3f88e.html

"If confirmed, it would be the second known jaguar in the United States. The only confirmed U.S. jaguar has called an area just south of Tucson home for about three years."

So if the article is correct, if confirmed, it indeed would be second known jaguar in the US as there's only one confirmed jaguar as it currently stands.

"El Jefe is one of only four or five jaguars that have been spotted in the U.S. in the last 20 years."

Regardless, it's a rare event/sighting in the US and interesting one was spotted/caught on camera.

I hope it is careful also. Too many crazy people who would kill it for a trophy.

You're thinking of Cougars, maybe?
