This is a great spotting! When we were in Alaska, on a tour bus, I saw one chasing a rabbit. The driver said they are very rarely seen!

Wow this is fantastic! In my country (Switzerland) there are only about 250 wild lynxes... people will camp out for days to photograph one!

Christiane was this in the wild? The Eurasian lynx was exterminated in Germany in the 19th century. Small populations have been reintroduced, and some animals have migrated from the nearby Czech Republic. A very special sighting!
