    I can't believe they shot her:((! The zoo blame the council. The council keep talking about dangerous animals, but there's never been an attack on a person by a Lynx! I'm so angry. :mad::mad:

    Saw this yesterday. Looks like some jobsworth decided to throw his weight around.

    Why they didn't just wave a roast chicken at it? Pretty sure that would worked.

    It worked when a cheetah escaped, so it would work for a lynx. Poor thing.

    Given the zoo's statement that the council official aggravated the situation leading to the eventual shooting of the lynx, what action is going to be taken against the official? Endangering the public, incompetence, causing the death of an endangered species... oh wait, he's protected by Unison so he gets to continue his career and a nice rock solid pension packet that we pay for.

    It sounds like that zoo was not the greatest as another lynx died there recently when they were trying to move it from an enclosure with a catchpole.

    They should probably shut the place down about now.
