What would you do if you saw a wild (dangerous) animal stuck in a hunter’s trap? This is the question that two Canadian men faced while walking in the woods recently. The two men saw a lynx struggling to free its paw from a trap.
The two men were not going to let the lynx suffer – but how would they free the animal without getting hurt themselves?
Hunting lynx in Canada became illegal in the early 1990s as their numbers in the wild dropped. Then in 2000, because there were so few left, the lynx was put on the endangered species list.
