Jaguars in New York Zoo?

My story is set in 1943 in New York, and it's Urban Fantasy with shapeshifting and stuff. One of the guys can turn into a black jaguar, South American if that matters. But, I wonder if any of the New York Zoos had a black jaguar at this time. I've tried to look at their homepages, and I can't find any zoo that have one now, and google doesn't say anything helpful.

  The only thing I did find was "Senor Lopez", a jaguar living in the lion house around 1906, but seeing as jaguars live about 20 years, I don't think he lived during the 40s.

Help would be very welcome!
