Colorado Lynx Found In Wyoming

Laramie, WY – The latest batch of kittens born to a reintroduced Colorado lynx have been found in the Snowy Range mountains west of Laramie. The discovery is the latest sign the Colorado lynx recovery program is taking hold after a shaky start in 1999. 20 kittens have been found so far this year, up from the 16 discovered last year. Biologists aren't surprised that a lynx made a den in Wyoming. They've tracked radio-collared lynx roaming more than 200 miles from southwestern Colorado into southern Wyoming.
