Lynx spotted in northern New Hampshire
CONCORD, N.H.—Fish and game biologists have confirmed the presence of four Canada lynx in northern New Hampshire that appear to be kittens.
Biologists say that means the wild cats are breeding in New Hampshire, an expansion of the population from neighboring Maine. They say four lynx were seen and photographed in November and this month in Pittsburg on different dates.
There have been seven cases in the last five years that lynx tracks have been documented in New Hampshire's North Country. An adult was spotted crossing a rural road in the north this spring.
Lynx are listed as endangered in New Hampshire as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. The last documented lynx in New Hampshire was a road-killed animal in 1993.
