Lynx lovers request: more bunnies, please

No votes yet

More attention is being focused on the Iberian Lynx, topic of a previous Flayrah article. Europe's "last big cat" needs more than just good intentions, says the IUCN, the World Conservation Union's, cat specialist group. It needs the rabbits it feeds on to be protected as well. Myxomatosis was introduced to control rabbits, and a later viral haemorrhagic fever almost whiped out the regional population. Now habitat must be returned to its wild state, and that includes reintroducing rabbits along with cats in the near future.
