This mother Lynx was held captive for years and forced to breed. The puppies were taken from her as soon as she gave birth to a litter, despite the fact that she had just given birth to them.

The kittens were then sold off as luxury pets around the world. Worse yet, they were made into fur.

“When I went to see them, I thought there’s no way that you could get those animals back to health and rehabilitate them,” Gordon Buchanan from the BBC tells inews.

After being given a better diet, and an outdoor space to move, the Lynx started showing signs of improvement.

Maintaining the lynx’s mistrust and hostility toward the humans was essential to the success of their mission. To survive in the wild, the Lynx must keep their distance from humans and fend for itself.

The Lynx has to also be trained up in ‘hunting behavior’ in order to provide for herself and her litter. They need to cultivate a hunting mode in order to recognize the sound of a bird flapping its wings or a mouse running across the forest floor.

The kittens are growing up well in conditions as close to the wild as possible.
They have to immediately switch into their hunting mode as soon as they hear those sounds so that they can get the kill.

Although the lynx and her kitten are making incredible progress in their rehabilitation, the process will take some time because they spent four years confined in a cage.

However, since a lynx can live for up to 15 years, we wish for her and her kittens that whenever they are returned to their natural habitat, they have a long and healthy life.
