Eurasian Lynx Sharing Prey in Slovenia

It’s mating season for Eurasian lynx in northern Dinaric Mountains in Slovenia. Video shows monitoring of lynx prey remains – red deer calf – shared by a pair of lynx (radiocollared female named “Maja” and an unknown male). Lynx are usually solitary, but pair stays together for about a week during mating. They were returning for several days until carcass was completely consumed. To hear lynx calling turn on your speakers. Monitoring was done as part of research at Biotechnical faculty at University of Ljubljana.
