Purgatory Ski Resort Lynx Found Dead in Colorado

The week after Christmas skiers at Purgatory Resort in south-west Colorado experienced a rarity. A lynx walked across a run, allowing folks to ‘capture’ the normally elusive cat on video and share on social media.

On Sunday that lynx was found dead and it’s body was brought to a Colorado Parks and Wildlife lab in Fort Collins for a necropsy. Initial reports indicate the lynx was emaciated and likely ill.

“The first time I saw it I wasn’t entirely surprised because we do get a lot of reports of lynx sightings,” said Scott Wait, the senior terrestrial biologist for CPW’s southwest region. “But after I saw three more videos of the same animal behaving the same way in the same area I figured that something was wrong with the cat. Wild animals die of various causes just like people do.”
