Where Can You Find Jaguars for Sale?

Jaguar cats can only be bought on the black market. It has been illegal to buy or sell a jaguar as a pet in the United States since 2007, when Congress deemed it illegal to buy or sell such animals.

Jaguars are large, powerful predators that are considered a threat to public safety. The only exemptions are sales to entities such as big cat rescues, circuses or zoos. The only place a prospective pet owner can find a jaguar is on the black market, where there is a burgeoning trade in wildlife. The illegal sale of jaguars is considered damaging to the wild population and to conservation efforts in the jaguars' native habitat.
