I was filming in the Pantanal of Brazil... Early one morning we spotted four jaguar close together - a female and three large, but immature, males. We kept our distance and slowly pulled up on the opposite bank to wait. The air was electric, we were tense with anticipation. The jaguar started fighting. It was something that we could have only dreamed of filming. Unfortunately, as soon as we started rolling several boats came on the scene and blocked our view of this rarely observed behaviour. To me, the boats were too close, and the jaguar didnt stick around long. Everyone has the right to experience nature and wildlife, but we must always consider boundaries to ensure that the welfare of the wildlife is paramount. #BBCEarth #EarthOnLocation #Jaguar #Filming #Pantanal #Tourism #TooClose #BigCat #Fighting
