    Because if you knew anything about animals, specifically cats, its a natural reaction to freeze and become immobilized when grabbed by the neck, as that is what the mother cat does to them when they are kittens. Works the same with small and medium sized dogs too.

    My dad hunted cats for decades. I showed him this video, he just chuckled and said “there’s a reason the lower half of the cat isn’t filmed. It was either shot or got the axe. No wild cat can be grabbed or scruffed. It would be violently attacking the whole time”. There’s a reason there’s no footage of this cat being “released”. It was either finished off, or dropped off somewhere half-dead and suffering.

    We encroach on wild animal habitats more and more each year, and then we are furious when these animals hunt our stock or raid our trash cans. I'm not saying I have a solution, but it's hard to side with humans when you look at how we use the land compared to animals.

    True, but at the same time he handled the situation better than anyone else could have. A little comeuppance for the lynx and it wasn't hurt or killed in the end. Plus I'd bet you'd be singing a very different tune if you were a farmer and you had two of your valuable chickens killed by a random wild cat. Some people's livelihoods hinge on chicken raising, so if anything he had an underwhelming reaction. Be happy the Lynx wasn't killed and go about your day.
