The gruesome scene of walruses plunging to their apparent deaths has been described by producer Sophie Lanfear as ‘the hardest thing I've ever had to witness or film in my career’.
‘What we think is going on is that the ones at the top can probably hear the ones in the water, and they can sense that there is water below. They teeter on the edge, and they just can’t work out how to get down there,’ Lanfear told the New York Times. ‘I was expecting that perhaps the walruses would tumble down, but at the end, they’d be O.K. I really wasn’t prepared for the scale of death. So, it’s just tragic. It’s absolutely heartbreaking.’
Our Planet is now available on Netflix. You have been warned!
