    They were establishing a population in Arizona. Then the scientists killed the alpha male. Haven’t heard much since then About them.

    There's still a few of them running around in South AZ from what I have read.


    Pretty sure I'd just fall over and shit myself if I saw one in the wild. Bad ass animal, but terrifying.

    They are not 'terrifying' ! I have been around them in the bushwhen I lived In Belize. They are zero aggressive. They eat 20lb rodent sized critters, armadillos and little gators in the jungle. I guess in other environments they adapt but wouldnt be maneaters. They actually arent that large. They can pack like 50lbs of meat I their belly so a 180# could be a 130# cat! Nice to hear some are still around up on our side. Back in the late 80's when I moved to an island on Belize barrier reef, this american veterinarian had rescued a kitten and hand raised it. I was a pet and slept with him and his wife! her's a pic I have of when he would take it to the beach for morning swim! The vet jody, was about 6ft3in so the cat was a big one about 175lbs.
