Colorado Lynx Found In Wyoming

Laramie, WY – The latest batch of kittens born to a reintroduced Colorado lynx have been found in Wyoming. The kittens were found in the Snowy Range mountains west of Laramie. The discovery is the latest sign the Colorado lynx recovery program is taking hold after a shaky start in 1999. 20 kittens have been discovered this year, up from the 16 found last year. Biologists aren't surprised that a lynx made a den in Wyoming. They've tracked radio-collared lynx roaming more than 200 miles from southwestern Colorado into southern Wyoming.
