Escaped lynx now been shot

Recommended Posts

I watched on tv that the escaped lynx has now been shot and killed personally I think they should have left it to go feral having seen one wild in north yorkshire I know they are harmless any comments on the subject ? Have you seen any big cats at all ?

Its not a big cat though. The Zoo owner is devastated by it and called for it to be tranquillised, but no lets shoot it instead. :mad:

Would that be the same zoo that took 6 days before they realised a lynx was missing?

They say they shot it because it was a threat to humans, although not nearly as great a threat as humans are to the natural world.

Very sad can't believe all options had been used but must have been a tough call for someone

In my opinion an appalling decision, typical throw away attitude to life of other species.
