This Lynx Shows His Gratefulness For Being Rescued A Little Too Much
This Lynx sure appreciates being rescued.
Nicknamed Pardo, this family found him injured and was nursed to health. As you can see, when approached by the son, he can’t help nuzzling him and rubbing himself affectionately at him. He may also be trying to rub his scent on the boy, so that other animals will recognize him as his territory, and not think to harm him.
Eventually, it gets to the point that the boy walks away from the table and ends up carrying the lynx, so that he has to carry him back. It’s a lovely scene that shows just how affectionate animals, even wild ones can be.
And with this comes a warning that if you do not personally know how to handle them, if you do find an injured wild animal, it is best to contact the authorities so that they can be taken care of properly.
