Watch: Lynx plays with hose pipe at Dudley zoo

A Carpathian lynx at Dudley Zoo has been having some fun with a hose pipe.

20-month-old Dakota started playing with it as the Senior Keeper began filling up the pool in the enclosure.

Sam said:

The hose was in the pool when Dakota suddenly appeared, grabbed the end of it in his mouth and started to pull it away!

Just like a domestic cat would play with a piece of string, Dakota was doing exactly the same and I ended up playing tug of war with him to try and get the hose back out the enclosure
