Noted happily. They say they have been trained in hunting and survival skills!! This is exciting news, and hope to get update sometime.
Thank You Cher.

Although this should be something to celebrate I'm not so sure - will this just be another animal to slaughter like the wolf?? There is talk about reintroducing the lynx in the UK as well but I really have mixed feelings about it because of all the morons we have now!!!!
