I read the part about Arizona jaguars, a subject I've researched extensively. Eberhart does not know his subject. He simply follows an all-too pervasive pattern of many other authors in the biological "sciences" of accepting whatever they've read by previous authors as gospel truth. I've mined the citations in the so-called "scientific" literature down to original sources. There is in fact NO reliable evidence that any historic "breeding population" of jaguars ever existed in Arizona. Eberhart did not examine or verify his sources and only spreads myth and misinformation in the publication this book.
