Three boreal lynx cubs are born after being extinct for a century

The boreal lynx ( Lynx lynx ) is the most common and well-known representative of the genus Lynx . Medium in size, it is a predator native to European and Siberian forests. However, it is in danger of extinction in many areas. In fact, it was a species totally disappeared in Asturias for more than a century until they announced the birth of three baby lynx in Cangas de Narcea that have brought a breeze of joy to a place like this.

Of the three cubs born just over a week ago in the future “Lince Station” on Asturian soil thanks to Luis Frijales, a lover of European lynxes who brought a couple from Germany to have young in Asturias , one of them , a small female named “Inga”, has died of what she suspects to be a viral infection.

They are very delicate animals so they hope that none of the other offspring have been infected, especially with the male with whom they shared space . They plan to reintroduce them to the mountain as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, every day they record their weight, their physiognomy and the behavior of the puppies with the aim of this future and expected reintroduction in the mountains of Asturias as is usual with other species of animals.

To finance their care, the Asturian Association for the Defense of Native Species, which has been working on the aid of species since 2001, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on the GoFundme platform with which they hope to get help for their food, among other things.
