The lynx is the most widespread wild cat in Canada and is best identified by its tufted ears and large paws, although they are sometimes mistaken for bobcats.
While they are captured on camera from time to time it's usually from a much farther distance, but the security camera allowed for a far closer view than we're used to seeing.
The lynx is not an endangered species and has plenty of space to roam, with a total North American range of 7.7 million km2 -- although some of that range has been lost to deforestation and human activity.
