A woman filmed a wild lynx that appeared in front of the Canada post office in Terrace Bay, Ontario.
Canadian resident Beth-Ann Colebourne admits to being “a little spun” by what appeared to be a full-sized lynx just outside her shop in Terrace Bay, Ontario.
Luckily, she was able to capture this unusual sighting on video.
Terrace Bay is a small town on the northern shore of Lake Superior in the province of Ontario, Canada. While probably not a hot bed for this type of sighting, it certainly is an area where wild cats are known to exist.
The woman who filmed the cat, Ms. Colebourne, has taken a little heat for calling to the lynx and saying things like, “What’s up buddy” and “Kitty, kitty, kitty.”
A lynx can weigh anywhere from 15 to 25 pounds and be up to 20 inches high at the shoulder. Wild cats, as they are known, commonly prey on hare and small rodents but can take down things larger than themselves, such as small deer.
It’s hard to tell if something was wrong with this animal, but it appeared to just be wandering through. While taking some video from a safe distance is a personal choice, it’s not recommended to approach any wild animal that appears somewhere as unusual as a post office parking lot, let alone try to call it.
