Ruling on jaguar may be relevant to Eastern cougar

In a ruling that may have some relevance to the Eastern cougar, a judge said the Interior Dept. could not decline to protect jaguar habitat just because the number of jagaur sightings was low. No one doubts that occasional jaguars turn up in Arizona and New Mexico: if it's established that even occasional cougars turn up in the Eastern states, there seems to be a precedent here.
