If you find it difficult to ignore abandoned creatures on the road, or if your kids are regularly wheeling pups and kitties, these are definitely good deeds. But be cautious! Little creatures are not always who they appear to be.
So, Matthew from Quebec was riding his mountain bike through the woods when he noticed something tiny and soft. When he got a closer, he realized it was a tiny cat. Matthew came to a halt to assist the infant.
«When I saw his paws, I knew it had to be a lynx. Then I saw tiny round ears and a little tail. «I was astounded it was a lynx,» the man explained.
However, Matthew had no idea if the lynx was still an orphan or whether his mom was somewhere nearby, who would clearly be upset to meet someone.
Matthew decided to leave the find in the forest after learning that he was not dealing with a domestic kitty, but a wild lynx. But the man couldn’t get his mind off this little creature. He resolved to return to the forest the following day.
The lynx was in the same location. And this time he was screaming and crying, and his mommy was nowhere to be found. When Matthew returned the next day and discovered the lynx in the same location, he decided to take it.
The man brought the baby home and notified the zoo. Matthew was taught how to feed and water a relatively tiny lynx at the zoo until he obtained professional assistance.
The lynx was smaller and less powerful than usual for the season.
The zoo has taken in the creature and will care for it until it is powerful enough to be released back into nature.
That’s the way the small lynx was able to resume his regular lynx life.
And Matthew is relieved that he was capable of helping the animal: «I am relieved that he is secure and in good health. I am overjoyed that he will endure. He’s very attractive.»
