A lynx

Return of the lynx 猞猁重回英國大自然


Elusive, shy and an excellent predator... but the lynx was hunted to extinction in Britain over 1,000 years ago.

Now, a conservation group plans to reintroduce the species to the wild. They say they aren't dangerous to humans, and claim that with an overpopulation of deer, the lynx will help rebalance the ecosystem.

But first, they'll have to convince farmers who think the animal would pose a threat to livestock.
