Himalayan Lynx Hunting Markhor in Pakistan

WWF Pakistan have released a rare video which is being claimed as the first capture of a Himalayan Lynx in Tooshi-Shasha Wildlife Conservancy, Chitral. The Himalayan Lynx is one of the most elusive and powerful cats living in these mountains, rivaled only by the famous snow leopard.

While filming a group of markhors, the WWF field production team and the KPK Wildlife Department spotted a Lynx preparing for a hunt. What followed was a dramatic scene few have ever witnessed – a Lynx stalking and successfully killing a yearling markhor.
