Lynxes haven’t dwelt in Hungary for 100 years. But just last week, the World Wildlife Fund reported that the cats have returned to northern Hungary, thanks to a hunting ban. According to the Agence France-Presse, the WWF report indicated that a young lynx was photographed in Aggtelek National Park. Said the WWF in their report, “The appearance of the lynx in the Hungarian slopes of the Carpathians is linked to a ban on hunting lynxes in Slovakia, which appears to have made the predators more adventurous and encouraged them to expand their hunting areas into Hungary.” Want to help the lynx population? You can “adopt” a lynx through the WWF.
