Some people are claiming that the young lynx that has gone on the run from Dartmoor Zoo is missing its mother. They think that, once he is captured, he should be reunited with her at the zoo in Kent where they were based.
The big cat gnawed his way out of his new enclosure in Devon within hours of his arrival last Wednesday, 7 July.
The zoo is even using recordings of the mother, supplied by Port Lympne reserve to try to lure two-year-old Flaviu into a trap laid for him.
Sam Crofts has started a petition saying this indicates that the youngster is missing his mum and should be reunited with her.
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.
