One of the four lynxes that were released in early May for breeding in Lorca, near the Pantano de Puentes, has been located inside the playground of the Alfonso X school, where he was wandering, as reported to Europa Press sources from the Emergency Coordination Centre.

At 7.25 hours on Wednesday 17, the room of the ‘1-1-2’ received a call alerting that there was a lynx in the courtyard of that school, in the area of Infants, and that he was wandering around, disoriented and unable to leave. Approximately one hour later, at 8.40 a.m., another call was received alerting that a lynx had crossed the motorway.

The Regional Ministry of Environment, on its twitter account, confirmed that ‘Tiko’, the lynx, “is running again in the bush after having been sighted early this morning in a neighbourhood of the city of Lorca”.

The Local Police of Lorca has moved to the school to proceed to the rescue of this animal, which was in good condition, according to sources consulted by Europa Press.

In the case of seeing a lynx or other protected animal, it is recommended to cordon off the area, not to approach it, not to try to catch it, so that it does not run away and to be able to capture it when the corresponding service is called. The Wildlife Recovery Centre El Valle and the environmental agents in Lorca should be notified through the ‘1-1-2’ number.
