Lynx kills markhor in Toshi

CHITRAL: A Himalayan lynx was seen  in Toshi Game Reserve in Lower Chitral with the carcass of a markhor killed by it.

According to the Snow Leopard Foundation, the incident took place in early morning of April 13, 2022.

Officials of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Wildlife Department first noticed it and informed Snow Leopard Foundation team who arrived at the location and photographed the predator with the prey.

It may be recalled that in April 2020, a wildlife department team was in Chitral to film markhors in the same Toshi game reserve when they spotted and filmed a Himalayan lynx hunting a markhor.

Lynxes have also frequently been seen in different parts of Chitral and the wild animal has killed goats as reported by the residents.
