Jaguar Captured and Collared in Arizona

This jaguar was captured "by accident" southwest of Tucson this week by biologists studying bear and mountain lion populations. He was fitted with a tracking collar and released. Beautiful animal!

I remembered that we had posted on the subject of the jaguars' reoccupation of southern Arizona previously, but until reviewing these had forgotten that one of them dealt with a controversial plan to purposefully trap, collar and track one of the critters.

Makes you wonder how "accidental" this really was, doesn't it?
