Venancio en todo su esplendor. Este machazo realmente robusto se paseó por varias de nuestras cámaras ubicadas en el norte de Salta en 2014, regalándonos imágenes como esta. Ya lo habíamos registrado en 2012, más de 40 kilómetros al norte. Luego, no volvimos a verlo más. ¿Habrás buscado otras zonas, te habrán corrido otros machos grandes, te habrán matado? Lo cierto que ser cazado es una de las probabilidades -y lamentablemente bastante altas- que tiene un yaguareté para terminar sus caminatas por nuestros montes, aún en 2019.
Salta es la provincia donde más acentuada está la cacería y donde menos respuestas se brindan desde el Estado ante estos ilícitos, pero en las 6 jurisdicciones donde aún habita la especie (las otras son Jujuy, Formosa, Chaco, Sgo. del Estero y Misiones) se siguen matando yaguaretés, ya sea como represalia por predaciones a animales domésticos como por diversión o temor, y las respuestas judiciales siguen siendo aún muy flojas y dejan bastante que desear. -------------- Venancio in all its splendor. This really robust big male walked through several of our cameras located in the north of Salta in 2014, giving us images like this one. We had already registered him in 2012, more than 40 kilometers to the north. Then, we did not see him again. Have you searched for other areas, will other big males have run you, will they have killed you? The truth is that being hunted is one of the odds -and unfortunately quite high- that has a jaguar to finish it walks through Argentina, even in 2019.
Salta is the province where hunting is most stressed and where fewer responses are offered from the State to these crimes, but in the 6 jurisdictions where the species still lives (the others are Jujuy, Formosa, Chaco, Sgo. Del Estero and Misiones) Jaguars continue to be killed, either in retaliation for predation on domestic animals as for fun or fear, and judicial responses are still very weak and leave much to be desired.

ABOUT THE JAGUAR
Jaguars are the largest of South America's big cats. They once roamed from the southern tip of that continent north to the region surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border. Today significant numbers of jaguars are found only in remote regions of South and Central America—particularly in the Amazon Basin.
These beautiful and powerful beasts were prominent in ancient Native American cultures. In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld. The name jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means “he who kills with one leap.” Hunting
Unlike many other cats, jaguars do not avoid water; in fact, they are quite good swimmers. Rivers provide prey in the form of fish, turtles, or caimans—small, alligatorlike animals. Jaguars also eat larger animals such as deer, peccaries, capybaras, and tapirs. They sometimes climb trees to prepare an ambush, killing their prey with one powerful bite.
Most jaguars are tan or orange with distinctive black spots, dubbed "rosettes" because they are shaped like roses. Some jaguars are so dark they appear to be spotless, though their markings can be seen on closer inspection.
Jaguars live alone and define territories of many square miles by marking with their waste or clawing trees.
Females have litters of one to four cubs, which are blind and helpless at birth. The mother stays with them and defends them fiercely from any animal that may approach—even their own father. Young jaguars learn to hunt by living with their mothers for two years or more.
Jaguars are still hunted for their attractive fur. Ranchers also kill them because the cats sometimes prey upon their livestock.
