Some Jaguars in Arizona are making a come back in the mountains south of Tucson. But Cheetahs in the Middle East are not doing all that good. The number is down from 110 to 70 just in the last six years. The species is extinct in Asia. There are three big cat species still left in the Asian. The species are the Asian lion, leopard and tiger. The number is going down. We need these big cats in the world.

Yes we do need the big cats to balance out all of the animal kingdom. I love to see the photos and shows about them. I think cheetas are my favorite or the black pumas..so stealth.

@jstory07 I'm still not understanding, why don't people just leave those animals alone!:)

I agree, it is sad the way these big cats are disappearing. We humans have a lot to answer for.

We do need the bigger animals to help keep the balance. Otherwise, one animal population will out number the other and create a mess.

We need a few of each species or they will be gone forever.

Yes that is tragic. You might be interested in taking a look at this.
Populations of many of the world’s wild cats are plummeting, with the number of tigers falling to roughly 3,200. In an interview with Yale Environment 360, Alan Rabinowitz, a leading wild cat biologist, lays out a vision of how populations of these magnifi

@jstory07 - I have read that we are in the middle of a mass extinction around the world. That is so scary and very sad. Our great-grandchildren may only know about many of these animals from picture books.

@jstory07 - People don't seem to care about important things until it is too late. That is so sad.

It is very sad. I see on my Care2 newsletter that mountain lions in California are getting killed trying to cross the freeways.
