The jaguar is a near threatened species and its numbers are declining. In the Paraguayan Chaco they are relatively common in Alto Paraguay Department, but in Presidente Hayes there are many records of local extinction. This species is rare or absent in many parts of its natural distribution range due to overhunting for the skin trade, habitat loss for deforestation, persecution by ranchers, and probably loss of prey species.
