For years, HCN contributor Tony Davis has been following -- and writing about -- the Southwest's endangered jaguars. The rare cats are in danger of being wiped out in the U.S. by the border fence that isolates them from their Mexican counterparts (see our story Cat Fight on the Border). Recently, a huge male cat, the oldest known jaguar in this country, was killed when a wolf and bear trapping project went wrong. Davis, an Arizona Daily Star reporter, was on that story when it broke, and now the paper has a Web page with all the latest news about the jaguar. A great resource for keeping up with the unfolding story of death, ambition ... and lawsuits.
