Eurasian Lynx escapes from animal park in Wales

A lynx has escaped from a wildlife park in Ceredigion. The Eurasian lynx, which is about twice the size of a domestic cat, escaped from Borth Wild Animal Kingdom, near Aberystwyth.

Police said they have been told the animal went missing some time during the last five days. Park operators said there has never been an attack recorded on people - but warned the public it could retaliate "if cornered or trapped". Staff said the lynx should not be approached if spotted - as it is a wild animal and has sharp teeth and claws. BBC 29.10.17
