The Iberian lynx faces extinction in Spain. Relocate some to the UK. — 3 Comments

  1. Too funny. You have driven your own Scottish Wildcat to extinction with your moggies, last count there were fewer than 40 left, and now you think you can save a different species. No prey = extinction, as you say. What non-native cats of yours do you think are eating up all the prey animals and driving all your other cats and animals to extinction right where you live? Your blind-spots are bigger than the UK.

    I guess you’re not even aware that your own house-cats roaming free are driving all manner of native cats to extinction across the planet. The Endangered Florida Panthers are dying from house-cats diseases. Lions, tigers and cheetah are dying off in wildlife preserves from your free-roaming house-cats.

    Oh, you’re all so smart and care so much about all the animals of the world, aren’t you. Why don’t you all just go kill yourselves and do the world and all animals on it a huge favor.

    • Make the next comment more polite please. Also please support your statements with some hard evidence. Your comment is outrageous. This for example:

      Provide me some evidence. Any evidence.

  2. If the plans to re-introduce lynx into the UK go ahead, I agree that in principle it would make sense for it to be the more endangered Iberian lynx.

    Perhaps the Eurasian lynx is closer to the original lynx we once had in Britain and would therefore be a better fit with our ecosystem? Do Eurasian lynx tackle larger prey, such as the deer population they would help control, than their Spanish cousins?

    It would be very interesting to hear the Lynx Trust UK’s input on how they decided which species would have a better chance of success in the UK.
