Pecos Jaguars – 1881,1901

Source: “Biological Survey of Texas” by Vernon Bailey

There is a sentence in the “Biological Survey of Texas” about jaguars near the mouth of the Pecos River that I thought should be noted.

Pecos jaguar article

The fact that a jaguar was killed upstream near Ozona a couple of decades later that seems to confirm that cats were moving up and down the Pecos River valley. There is also millennia-old rock art at Seminole Canyon that seems to depict jaguars, so this must have been happening for a quite long time.
