Why do big cats usually attack man?
Travellers from South America forests usually say that they have been sometimes followed for miles by jaguars, who showed no inclination of attacking them. After covering some distance, they went away. This may seem to be a puzzle, for big cats that are reputed to be fierce hunters. However, there is a simple explanation for his behaviour. The fact is that big cats usually attack when you intrude on their territory, or approach near their den. They are just protecting their space, their homes, and their family. So, the big cats who followed the travellers, were in facts, just escorting them to make sure that they do not wander into their territory!
