Video Shows Lynx Crossing Road in Northern Maine [VIDEO]
Check out this awesome video posted to Facebook on Thursday from Rob Michaud in Northern Maine.
The video shows a group of Lynx crossing a snowy Maine road. The comments say the video is shot on Route 11 in Grindstone, Maine, which lies between Millinocket and Sherman.
The filmer is in a vehicle stopped in the middle of Route 11. The funny thing about the video is you can hear a dog in the vehicle growling at the Lynx... just letting them know whose Route 11 it really is.
According to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, the Canadian Lynx is federally a threatened species and a species of special concern in the State of Maine. They are more commonly found in Western and Northern Maine, where snow depths are deepest in the state, but the species is expanding into eastern sections of Maine.
Right now male lynx are on the move to find female mates, so maybe sites like this will be happening more commonly now that it's breeding season. Be on the lookout!
