Big Cats

The Elusive Lynx

While hiking in the bush during March a few years ago, I came across the tracks of an animal that I assumed had not inhabited the eastern Georgian Bay region for some time.

I had simply deduced that it had been trapped and possibly shot to such an extent that any remnant population which had existed was long gone. Apparently I was wrong and glad of it!

In one and a half hours I had managed to trudge, in my estimation, five to six kilometres straight into the woods. During the warmer months I would not have been able to access this area due to the abundance of marsh and bog-like conditions which would have blocked my way.
