Monsta you seem to be a bit stuck with this extinct 2500 yrs business, according to reports there seem to be thousands still living in the wild. So this means...now let me think.....ahhh....yes they are not extinct :lol: :lol:

not in europe but you will find they are extinct in the uk! (apart for 1 or 2 escapees!)

You're absolutely right, Monsta, the native Lynx is extinct in England and the UK, just as the Wildcat is extinct in England.

However, 'one or two escapees' is an uneducated guess.

As long ago as the 1920's there were known to be three Lynx living together in Scotland; did they breed? In the mid 70's a young Puma cub was shot near London. It was almost a new born, indicationg its parents were still at large (they were never found). The number of sightings of cats alien to our country (that means native to another, not from outer space) over the past 50 years include positive identifcations of an Ocelot in the early 1990's, seen repeatedly in a part of Surrey, if I remember rightly, and many instances of smaller alien cats and even a clouded leopard.

These aren't just tentative assumptions - these are actual, recorded sightings. Given that it was very trendy in the late 1960's among the wealthy to own exotic pets (the famous Harrods store had a pet shop specialisin in them, and a story goes a gentleman once requested a camel; 'One hump, or two?' was the assitants reply) and there are records of many purchases of Lynx, Puma, Jungle cats and more from both Harrods and other stores, where did they all go when, suddenly, owners were required to have an expensive licence following the Dangerous Animals Act in 1976? Very few instances of zoos accepting such animals - animals that existed as we know from sales receipts - yet suddenly nobody owned them! Where, again, did they go?

It's a subject that raises many questions, yet provides few answers; what is certain, and even the most sceptical of commentators admits so, is that there are lynx, puma, ocelot and more living in the wild in England. How many is unknown.

One more Pete though this one not a golfer, bloke over heard me talking to a mate in the paper shop, about the cats he says he was driving past golf course and nearly crashed his car when a big cat ran across the road in front of him, swears blind it wasn't a fox as he has seen plenty of them in his time. Same as the others didn't want to say owt before, in case of ridicule!

Yes I can understand people not wanting to say anything but if the evidence is that strong and it does appear to be so, why not inform the BBC they at least might investigate

That's the Iberian Lynx, unique to the Iberian Peninsular. The Eurpoean Lynx is quite common.In Europe, that is.

Still say the BBC is worth a punt just to get to the bottom of this.

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
