A wild jaguar, who was seen roaming the mountains of Arizona in 2016, has been spotted again in a different part of the state. According to the reports, the jaguar, who has been named Sombra by the students at Tucson's Paolo Freire Freedom School, was seen by a camera trap in the Chiricahua Mountains. This area is roughly 40 to 60 miles southeast of the Dos Cabezas Mountains where Sonbra was first spotted in November 2016. Randy Serraglio, conservation advocate with the Center for Biological Diversity, said in a statement Friday, "It seems that it's established residence in excellent habitat more than 50 miles north of the border, which is great news for jaguar recovery."
