B.C. farmer grabs lynx by scruff of neck, scolds it for killing chickens

"The lynx had feathers in his mouth, he didn't want to leave without a chicken," Paulson said. "I tried to scoot him out of there, but he was so focused on his prey. So I just reached down and picked him up like a house cat does with its kitten."

Paulson estimates the cat ó which had killed two of his chickens ó weighed about 11 kilograms.

Farmers often shoot wild animals that attack their livestock. But Paulson said he was able to put the lynx in a dog kennel before relocating it "a bit further out in the bush."

The lynx was so skinny that Paulson and his family decided to leave the two dead chickens with the animal in the bush.

Now, that's knee slapping funny! But in the end, he handled it correctly, I say.

Pretty cool guy to recognize the value of the life of the Lynx.

That is a dangerous action particularly because the animal was malnourished meaning it hasn't been able to hunt successfully.  https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/rural-alaska/2020/03/06/lynx-shot-in-kiana-tests-positive-for-rabies/
