PC James Timmis from Devon and Cornwall Police warns people not to approach Flaviu the lynx who is missing from Dartmoor Zoo but to dial 999.
It seems the young lynx on the run from Dartmoor Zoo is social media savvy. Here are a few posts from a twitter account in the name of @DartmoorLynx
A major search is underway after a lynx escaped its enclosure at Dartmoor Zoo.
The animal is thought to have left the grounds. Police have visited two local schools to reassure them and make sure pupils are inside. Officers have also gone house to house in the area.
The police helicopter is assisting in the search.
The animal should not be approached as it could become dangerous if alarmed or cornered.
- If people sight it they should call 999 immediately quoting log 252 of 7 July 2016
