Staff at Dartmoor Zoo are 'playing the waiting game' this morning (8 July) in anticipation of the safe return of a lynx, that escaped from captivity yesterday.
Lots of great track sightings in the night. Hoping Flaviu will enter one of our humane traps soon, tempted by the tasty meat & be home soon
Flaviu the Lynx hasn't been seen since 6 July. Police drones and thermal imaging has been instated to try and locate the missing animal.
Going out tonight to see if we can assist in searching for the missing Lynx using our new Thermal Camera supporting NPAS
Flaviu the lynx is back at Dartmoor Zoo after escaping three weeks ago. He's a bit grumpy but staff have news that might cheer him up
Keepers have said they will play recordings of the missing wildcat's mother in an attempt to persuade it into a humane trap.
Police are reminding members of the public not to approach the lynx which escaped from Dartmoor Zoo, nor to be tempted to look for it.
