Vermont’s 1st Lynx in 39 Years?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 21st, 2007

Canada Lynx

The Associated Press is announcing that Vermont state wildlife biologists have said the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is back:

Officials have confirmed the presence of a Canada lynx in Vermont for the first time in nearly 40 years. Wildlife biologists from Vermont and New Hampshire identified a set of lynx tracks in a state wildlife management area in Victory on Feb. 7. The Canada lynx is native to Vermont, but the population has always been small. The last time a lynx was spotted in Vermont was in 1968.

    Lynx are beautiful creatures. If lynx are repopulating the forest, you know that the forest itself is healing. This is wonderful news.

    Here in central Ontario (just below the line of the Mattawa River-Lake Nipissing-French River) two local hunters spotted a wolverine recently, which while not unheard of is extremely rare…this winter has had more deep cold weather (minus 30 celcius) than the past several winters, and the wolverine most definitely likes things cold. Also, the local deer population has seemingly exploded, almost surely a factor in recent cougar sightings, tracks, signs and anomalous deer kills over the past couple of years.

    This does sound like great news :)

    I like cats :)

    Great news! As a person (maybe the only one reading this) who’s been in Victory VT many times, I’m not surprised in the least that’s where this evidence comes from. The Northeast Kingdom is famous for its rurality, but Victory is about as rural as you can get.

  5. ArneBrutal responds:

    Whoa its great with Lynx’es?? not sure if i spelled right.
    Well im swedish. Well i have never seen a lynx in wild but i would love to. They live in swedish forests and thats so cool!

  6. joppa responds:

    Here in the South, a lynx is known as a “souped-up bobcat”. I hope they keep on coming, very cool cats.
