How would you feel about jaguars being here in New Mexico?

An environmental group thinks it’s a good idea.

The center for biological diversity says it wants the federal government to set aside millions of acres in New Mexico and Arizona for the big cats.

The center says the cats need to be re-introduced to the wild.

    I am thrilled to know that they still exist in this area of the country. I’m sad to know that as thrilled as I am there are some people, namely ranchers that probably are not. Ranchers need to be more proactive in the care and protection of their herds. They should follow the practice of the French and others of using Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) breeds to protect their animals. it is a wise investment. I say education is the key to these issues around wolves and other predators. Do not exclude for the financial gain of others.

    Jaguars belong here. When will we stop letting the ranching community dictate what goes on our public lands? Don’t want jaguars on your private land? Fine. However, the taxpayers have every right to determine what happens on public land even if grazing is allowed there.
