Emails revealing AGFD employees hired the Center for Biological Diversity to replace the jaguar habitat model for New Mexico that was developed by New Mexico Dept. of Game and Fish and peer-reviewed: CBD was hired for 1¢ below the threshold of public bid.
AGFD response to public records request from Center for Biological Diversity. Emails indicate that imported jaguars may have been seeded into the Chiricahua Mtns. Another document indicates the AGFD officers who arrested Curtis Prock suspected that the female and male jaguars killed in 1963 and 1964 on the Mogollon Rim were imported.
