Lynx Births a Boon to Reintroduction Effort

May 24, 2003|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Two lynxes have been born in the Colorado wilderness, the first confirmed offspring in a 4-year-old program aimed at reintroducing the cats to the state's southwestern mountains.

A lynx released in 2000 gave birth in the San Juan Mountains, said a spokesman for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. Biologists found the female and two kittens in a remote den at 11,000 feet on Wednesday.
