In Europe talking about the lynx, usually the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) is meant. It is the largest cat of prey in Europe. Similar to all big cats, the lynx has been hunted excessively and exterminated systematically. A main reason is that the lynx was dreaded as being disingenuous. He hunted productive livestock like sheep and goats and his fur was well loved being precious.Indeed the lynx is a shy loner which only attacks humans when being cornered and not having another option to defend itself.
Naturally the lynx can be found in Scandinavia, the Carpathian Mountains and some countries of former USSR. In Middle-Europe it was completley extincted. A couple of yers ago first projects were started to resettle the lynx. Today we know that it is an important part in a well balanced ecological system and that it haunts firstly ill and weak animals.

Our sitting plush lynx plays its role in reviving its species, even if only for living rooms. Unmistakable are the big ears with the noticeable tufts of hair, which allow its living fellows to hear and localize sounds extraordinarily well. The large furred paws act like snowshoes; the lynx is perfectly adjusted to the European forest and mountain regions.
