Abstract

In early 2003, a two-year-old male lynx (Lynx canadensis) was cruising through his territory near Kamloops, British Columbia, searching for prey. As he maneuvered through the forest, padding easily in deep snow, he picked up the scent of food. He lowered his nose, took a step, and paused. All at once, what should have been just another in a lifetime of simple steps proved ill-fated. He found himself caught. No matter what he did, he couldn’t free his paw from the hold of a trap. Soon a human came along and jabbed something sharp in his rump, which rendered him unable to move. When he came back to his senses, his life had changed in surprising ways.
