The name “lynx” originated in Middle English via Latin from the Greek word “λύγξ”, derived from the Indo-European
root “*leuk-”, meaning “light, brightness”, in reference to
the luminescence of its reflective eyes is considerable confusion about the best way to classify felids at present, and some authorities classify them as part of the genus Felis.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said the lynx was found dead on March 15 in the ice near the public boat ramp on Anderson Lake. An examination found the federally-protected cat had been caught in a leg hold trap.
Anyone with information on this case or other lynx killings is asked to call Special Agent Ron Kramer at 218-720-5357. The reward will be issued for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for killing the lynx.
Canada lynx are listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act and killing wild lynx is prohibited by the federal law. The maximum penalty for the unlawful take of a Canada lynx is six months imprisonment and/or a $25,000 fine.
The Fish and Wildlife Service said Canada lynx have short, solid black-tipped tails, long-legs and large feet. They are similar in appearance to bobcats, and weigh about 20 to 30 pounds. Lynx are solitary animals that often avoid people. More information is available at http://www.fws.gov/midwest/endangered/mammals/lynx/index.html.
