ABOVE VIDEO: Researchers in Arizona have released video showing jaguar living near Tucson. It is thought to be the only living jaguar in the United States. The video footage shows the large cat roving in wooded areas near Tucson. The video is the first publicly released footage of the jaguar, known as “El Jefe,” Spanish for “the boss.” Approximately 7 years old, the animal is an extremely rare kind for researchers. Though El Jefe is one of only four to five jaguars that have been seen in the U.S. over the last 20 years, he is the only one to be documented.
