Great, great, great! A gorgeous cat. They are about 3 ft. high with long legs as thick as a muscular man's arms. Shape sort of like a boxer dog. I've only seen one from a distance in my life in N. Ontario, Canada even though they are plentiful. Known as the 'grey ghost'. Need lots of snowshoe hare (about their only prey). Those big furry paws are the size of small dinner plates so they can travel in snow.
They may flourish if hunters and trappers leave them alone...
