The Lynx wild cat that escaped from Dartmoor Zoo today has been shot dead by local farmers in Devon. It seems they were too eager with the lead pellets and the poor endangered animal has met an early end after freedom from the zoo. An anonymous farmer told Civil Unrest that:
“We do not care for wild cats round these parts and especially ones that will harm our livestock. The Lynx wandered onto our land and we finished him off with some nice shotgun action. We are now waiting for the local authority to come and collect the carcass“.
“Let this be a warning to any wild animal that threatens our way of life and we will also be having strong words with the Zoo about how they let such a dangerous animal escape“.
