A lynx looking out



In Sweden you can find 1500 lynx in the wild after a decline for many years to a low of 200 animals30 years ago. It's called "the tiger of the Nordic" and is the largest (and only) wild cat here. The menu is hares and roebucks and even the occasional reindeer. The lynx from Järvzoo looking out from behind a tree is a nice symbol, I think, of this the last day of the year. Hopefully the coming year will not be as aggressive as the lynx jumping at my brother-in-law:-) Happy New Year to you all!
