Lynx are not just visiting people in the Sault (7 photos)

Monday, March 24, 2014   by: Staff received the following photos and message from loyal reader Andrew Obrien.

These photos were shot near Wawa Thursday morning. 

There were two of them. 

They were not bothered by me what-so-ever and were playing in the snow.

The lynx haven't hurt anyone in our city and ours hasn't gone after any pets yet. Just don't let your animal walk off leash. The lynx are eating mostly squirrel so far and people are able to get within 10 feet of our lynx even while its eating...there's no need to shoot them, just leave them be.

Wouldn't mind seeing it take down a few of these yappy little dogs in people's yards that never shut up.

Big bad deerhunter must cower in fear every time he opens his front door!

Boggles the mind to think that there are folks out there so intolerant and afraid of anything like the beautiful animals pictured.

Last time I checked, nature has a unique way of taking care of things on its own. without our intervention, and agenda driven initiatives. last time I checked, the lynx were here first. our subdivisions and developments have encroached on their areas, not they on ours.

enjoy them while they are around, for once the winter eases up, they will go about their quiet secretive lives in the
forest, feeding on rabbits and squirrels like they have for time immemorial.
if any readers here heard the cbc radio interview with the woman from the trailer park in timmins, about the lynx who had to come out of the deep bush to find food to survive, and were seen near the trailer park, (she puts these lynx right up there with great white sharks, black mambas and komodo dragons as among the most dangerous animals on earth today), I have no doubt you too are incredulous as to the comments some folks make.
