Scientists have uncovered a Canadian lynx specimen that briefly roamed the British countryside, at least until it killed two dogs and was dispatched by a gun-wielding farmer in southwestern England. The discovery probably will cause fanatics of the British Big Cat Theory to smile like a Cheshire Cat. They've been trying to convince skeptics that people who've reported seeing a large black panther and any number of smaller feral felids are not crazy. This lynx, however, is long dead.

Among the hundreds of gadgets, games and apps at January's Consumer Electronics Show, few had the sizzle of James Buch's gleaming silver hunk of hardware. That's because the device is a barbecue grill - one that's Wi-Fi enabled, voice activated and chatty in a Siri-ish way. "When the Lynx Smart Grill is ready for the food, it sends you a text," said Buch, chief executive of Lynx Professional Grills of Downey. "When it's time to flip the food, it sends you a text.

You could call it deja vu. The Western Conference playoff field is identical to last year's - Minnesota has clinched first place, the Sparks have finished second, Phoenix has come in third and Seattle is fourth. But Candace Parker was quick to point out what she thinks are the biggest differences between this year and last year, when the Sparks advanced past the Mercury in the first round but were swept out of the playoffs in the Western Conference finals by the Lynx. "I think we're smarter, we're more talented, and we're hungrier," Parker said.

Agricultural groups sued to stop a plan to import and release the rare Canadian lynx into two national forests in Colorado, saying cattle and sheep grazing might be jeopardized. The groups claimed in its U.S. District Court suit filed in Denver that authorities have failed to assess the total impact introduction of the wildcat would have. The groups want an injunction to temporarily block the release of 15 lynx next month in the San Juan National Forest and the Rio Grande National Forest.

The first of 80 lynx will begin arriving in southwestern Colorado next month in a plan to reintroduce the wild cat to the state after a nearly 25-year absence.

The Colorado Wildlife Commission on Thursday approved plans to release more lynx in the state on condition that federal officials give the state greater say in managing the cats. A Colorado Sierra Club official claimed the decision was driven by politics, not concern for the lynx.

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.

The world's most endangered feline species may become extinct in the wild within 50 years, researchers say, a victim of climate change. A new report projects that Iberian lynx could become the first cat species in at least 2,000 years to become extinct, researchers found, largely because of the decline of the European rabbit, which makes up 80% of the cat's diet. The report, published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change, warns that current efforts to boost population of the distinctive tufted-eared cat will only “buy a few decades” for the animal that was once abundant in parts of Spain, Portugal and France.

The Sparks knocked the Western Conference-leading Minnesota Lynx out of their comfort zone Friday night with a 87-59 victory at Staples Center.

"The Wall" is a remarkably involving film, especially given its brave, self-imposed limitations. Writer-director Julian Roman Pölser, working with the superb Martina Gedeck ("The Lives of Others") - in effect, the movie's sole actor - has crafted a gripping tale of survival, loss, fate and other big themes, all wrapped up in a deceptively basic story. Gedeck's unnamed character, let's call her "the woman," finds herself alone in the scenic Austrian mountains after Hugo and Luise, the older couple she's traveled there with, set off for a walk into the village and never return.

Two female lynx from Canada bounded into the snowy Colorado wilderness Wednesday, marking the latest reintroduction of a species to the West. The lynx, whose thick brown-gray coat once lured trappers into the Colorado back-country, was last seen in the state in 1973 near Vail. Last fall, an underground environmental group said it set damaging fires at the Vail ski resort to protect lynx habitat.
