Rarely seen these days, cattaurs (sometimes called a gynosphinx) used to range in great numbers along the cliffs of Mingus Morgul and the mountains of central Arizona. Their numbers have diminished due to incursions on their environment and to being eaten by dragons. But a mother cattaur and two cubs were spotted outside of Jerome early last spring. Some authorities claim it was actually a mountain lion, but of course that's just plain silly.
