This cat was photographed by Warner Glenn, a
rancher/guide based out of Douglas, AZ. These photos were taken while on
a lion hunt in the Animas Mtns in Hildago County, NM - (not Anton Chico
as has been reported). The rancher knew better than to shoot an
endangered species, and he instead photo'd the magnificent cat. In
addition to being a lion hunter, Glenn is involved in the protection of
the jaguar. After spanking several of his dogs (the cat could have
easily bitten through their heads and killed them), the cat trotted off.
He did not run, Mr. Glenn said. He was not afraid of anything. Later he
estimated that the jaguar, by the look of his teeth, was eight or nine
years old and weighed nearly 200 pounds. Mr. Glenn named the cat Border
King. Glenn has seen two jags in NM, the first of which, several months
later, was shot by a federales police officer in Mexico, 30 miles from
the United States border. Submitted by JR.
