Such a decision was made in accordance with the American Law on Endangered Species and on the basis of “accessible scientific and commercial information”.
The eastern puma was observed since 1938, and at the moment, according to reports, there is no evidence of the existence of a subspecies or single representatives of this subspecies anywhere.
