Center for Biological Diversity
SILVER CITY, N.M.— A new federal recovery plan for Gulf Coast jaguarundis (see PDF) — rare and enigmatic felines slightly larger than house cats — calls for reintroducing them to south Texas, provided none can be found to still live there and other conditions are met. Jaguarundis, which have long necks, short legs and elongated tails, have been protected as an endangered species since 1976. The closest known population is 130 miles south of the border, in Mexico.
