We’ve been made aware that sometime over the last 5 days a female lynx has escaped from the Animalarium in Borth, Ceredigion. We are therefore advising public in the area to be alert and vigilant.
The lynx is unlikely to approach people, but may attempt to take livestock or pets as food.
We do however advise that the animal should not be approached as it could become aggressive if cornered. It is believed that the lynx remains in fairly close proximity to the Animalarium, but of course it could potentially go further afield.
Any sightings should be reported to us by calling 101, or if the lynx is in the process of taking an animal, or appears caught or injured, then please call 999
