It’s rare to spot a Canada lynx in the wild. But to see two, and two doing this? It’s a once in a lifetime experience.
Sarah Verney was driving on a forest road near Kokadjo, Maine, when she and her friends spotted the two elusive cats in the middle of the road. They noticed the two wild cats were staring each other down and making the most unusual noise I’ve ever heard!
It appears the two cats were having some sort of standoff, likely over territory, and were “caterwauling” to determine the winner!
Verney wrote, “This is rare sighting of a stand off between two lynx that I was lucky enough to see with my own eyes! Once in a life time for sure.”
Maine is home to some 1000 lynx and is said to be the only American state with a breeding population.
What do you think of the standoff? It’s certainly fascinating behavior. Share it with your friends and family if you think so too.
