A farmer in northern B.C. who caught a lynx in his chicken coop on Sunday didn't react the way one might expect. He didn't grab a gun or yell at the wild animal.

Instead, Chris Paulson grabbed the lynx by the scruff of its neck, lifted it off the ground and scooped it from the coop.

Then he gave it a gentle scolding. 

"He just looked ... a bit like [a kid] with its hand in the chocolate chip bag," Paulson told CBC News from his home near Decker Lake, west of Prince George.  

"So I kind of gave him a little lecture and and then told him he shouldn't come back."

He didn't truss it up with duct tape? 

What would RedGreen say? 


Good question

Jeff Palm, a conservation officer in nearby Burns Lake, said officials don't condone what happened.

"We don't recommend handling a lynx with  bare hands. You certainly might lose an arm," Palm told CBC News. "Lynx are wild cats and they can be ferocious."

Palm said he was surprised to hear Paulson "was able to grab it by the scruff of the neck and not end up being bitten and scratched up."

The conservation officer said while some people may think what happened was preferable to shooting and killing the lynx, "it is technically illegal to capture live wildlife and move them to a new location and can result in a fine."

Well, clearly he needs to wait for an game officer to come and then deposit it in the car with the game officer. Let him handle the problem.

With all the pain, suffering, and economic damage the Polar Vortex storm caused the Lower 48, isn't it time we start talking about punitive airstrikes against the Great White Peril?

It came from Alaska thru Canada because Greenland rejected it.
