Lynx and Vole

Mike Jokinen, a biologist at Alberta Conservation Association, put together trail cam footage of a Canada lynx playing the ultimate game of cat and mouse (vole). Lynx are secretive animals, but 2013 is a good year to see them because it is a peak year. Their populations follow those of the snowshoe hare, which makes up most of their diet, and it is a peak year for snowshoe hares as well.

    Suspect that Lynx was not particularly hungry at the time it spotted the vole, given it decided to play around for a bit. 🙂
