A new batch of photos of an endangered male jaguar walking through the Santa Rita Mountains was released this week by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Some facts about the photos:
A Tucson man caught a 56 pound catfish at Patagonia lake this week, Arizona Game and Fish officials say.
A newborn mule deer fawn that was said to be found near Willcox by a man who claimed its mother was killed by a coyote will arrive at its new home in a Prescott zoo today.
A predator-calling device was used to lure a mountain lion shot to death at Colossal Cave Mountain Park, records show.
Let's clear something up right off the bat. The measure of success for reintroducing desert bighorn sheep into the Santa Catalina Mountains is sheep and lions coexisting naturally in a healthy ecosystem, as they did for centuries.
This is the original unaltered photo of a jaguar in the Santa Rita Mountains that was taken by a hunter's remote camera. The vacant "yellow" eyes are caused by the camera's flash.
The Game and Fish Department posted this photo on its Facebook page for a few hours but took it down because it had been digitally altered to make the cat's eyes look more natural.
It's a great photo, as state officials acknowledge. But it wasn't what it seemed.
The black bear was found between Buffalo Soldier Trail and Seventh Street. The Sierra Vista area has had increased bear activity since the 2011 Monument Fire made it harder for them to find food, officials say.
A bear that had climbed a tree in Sierra Vista was captured and relocated Friday, state officials say.
PHOENIX - Jack Husted, who recently resigned as chairman of the Arizona Game and Fish Commission, was the subject of multiple allegations of sexual harassment by state employees.
State wildlife officials are offering a reward of up to $500 for information leading to an arrest in connection with the shooting death of a javelina south of Bisbee.
The mystery of the spotted cat is no more - it was, indeed, a jaguar that was seen in Southern Arizona last month, state game officials said Friday.
The black-tailed prairie dogs, a keystone species, should improve grassland health and animal diversity in their new Sonoita-area home.
A colony of black-tailed prairie dogs moved into new digs Monday as part of an Arizona Game and Fish Department program to re-establish the once-native species to its historic range.
This javelina - a wild desert animal in the pig family - was attracted to a residential area by birdseed left outside. Javelinas are ornery and can bite people; it's not an animal you want to attract.
After receiving reports of javelina sightings possibly related to people feeding wildlife in Green Valley recently, the Arizona Game and Fish Department wants to remind residents that feeding wildlife is not only illegal but can also compromise the safety of people and pets.
A bear decided to take in the sights in Sierra Vista as its curiosity led it into the backyards of Sierra Vista residents. It eventually was persuaded to return to land suitable for bears.
Officers in Sierra Vista spent a few hours Thursday morning trying to drive out a bear that was jumping into residents' yards.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department stocked Peña Blanca Lake with a total of about 2,000 fish on Friday.
