Wild cats in the Netherlands


This video, recorded in Germany, is about European wild cats.

Three years ago, there was wildlife research with camera traps in Limburg province in the southern Netherlands. Then, no lynxes or wild cats were seen.

In 2013, there was research again. This time, the cameras recorded five wild cats. Once, a hiker found a dead wild cat. No lynxes again.

Animals were attracted to the camera traps by food, like peanut butter or fish oil. Pine martens, beech martens, polecats, red foxes, wild boars and others were seen as well.

Six rare kittens were recently born at a Scottish zoo, and hidden cameras caught the creatures’ first steps outside their nest box. The baby Pallas’s cats somewhat resemble Persian cats, though they are more suited for the high plateaus and mountainous parts of central Asia than a litter box: here.
