Arizona Jaguar is a subspecies of jaguar of unknown status in Arizona. Hunted nearly to extinction by 1905, though breeding populations persisted at least through the 1940s and probably until the 1960s. Confirmed jaguar sightings took place in 1971 (east of Nogales), 1986 (Dos Cabezas Mountains), 1996 (Baboquivari Mountains), and 2001 (near the Mexican border), with scattered, unconfirmed reports occurring almost annually. Whether this constitutes a breeding population or occasional stragglers from Mexico is uncertain. The subspecies was declared endangered in the United States in 1997
