High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

We have now jumped past mountain lions at every turn and now we arrive at Jaguars.

Y'all can laugh all you like. I'm sorry that the pic didn't reproduce on this forum as clear as the original, but I'm telling you this is a jaguar. The spots, LONG TAIL, and head give it away on the original pic. This came from a area being shredded in the river bottoms on a huge ranch, and it is a remote, extremely overgrown nasty forest. I know jags are seen in Texas along the border, just a bit surprised at this far north. Hoping to get another picture, and I'll post it. Laugh away!

What about that guy that posted earlier in the year for the big cat study. IF it is a jaguar or jaguarundi, that pic may be worth some $$$.

Actually that's not really that far out of Ocelot territory, probably though it's a bob with a great coat.

The way people keep getting these "pets" and then setting them free or losing them, nothing out there would surprise me. Pythons, boas, Iguanas, tigers, cobras....

Do you have a picture from the same camera at the same angle of a different animal for size comparison? I am thinking Big ol Bob with an unusually long tail. I could be wrong, but I'd bet it's a Bobcat.

I live in Inez just outside Victoria and Lolita is not Northeast of Victoria, it is slightly Southeast! I feel that this is a large bobcat as I can't really see a "long" tail. Jaguars are huge cats with some well over 200 pounds.

If it has a long tail, it is an ocelot, which are in the same genus as leopards. If it has a short tail, it is a bobcat.

Ocelots are stout, muscular cats running up to 40 - 50 pounds. So they can be more muscular than the average size bobcat.

Another id point is ocelots have round ears and bobcats have pointed ears. Jaguarundis also have rounded ears, though young jaguarundis can have pointed ears.

Bobcats and ocelots have white patches on the back of their ears, jaguarundis do not.

Jaguarundis have unusually long bodies and tails.

Feral house cats have pointed ears, and tails and bodies not as long as jaguarundis.

I cannot see a long tail in those photos, but I sent you a PM with my email address to send the best quality image. If it is an ocelot, I have a standing offer of $1,000 for photos with an affidavit authenticating the photo and gladly will make good on it.

fwiw - jaguars are very big cats averaging over 200 pounds for males with some exceeding 300 pounds. Think about a body size as big as a big bodied mature buck in South Texas. Jaguars used to be present in South Texas.

Way off the rails, I have seen a photo of a tiger supposedly from the banks of the Rio Grande. It most likely was a pet that was turned loose, but never could obtain more specific info.

Thanks for sharing. up

Here is an article about a Jaguar in Southern Arizona
A friend who worked for AZ Game and Fish was hunting and saw BIG cat tracks. He put a couple trail cameras out.
The hunt was on a military base so he could not retrieve them, can only go during hunt. A squad was dispatched a few weeks later to get the cameras as "an exercise". When the soldiers saw the picture one said, "I’m never going into those mountains again. Nope. Never."


I believe this is the article.
