The Associated Press is announcing that Vermont state wildlife biologists have said the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is back:
Officials have confirmed the presence of a Canada lynx in Vermont for the first time in nearly 40 years. Wildlife biologists from Vermont and New Hampshire identified a set of lynx tracks in a state wildlife management area in Victory on Feb. 7. The Canada lynx is native to Vermont, but the population has always been small. The last time a lynx was spotted in Vermont was in 1968.
