Short making of from the photographic story by Photojournalist Emmanuel Rondeau (emmanuelrondeau.com) on Eurasian Lynx in France published in the May issue of the Terre Sauvage Magazine (terre-sauvage.com).
Who would imagine that in a country such urbanized as France a big cat as the Eurasian Lynx would make a come back? With 27 inches (70cm) high at the shoulder and a total weight of 50lbs (23kg), the feline is the biggest of all the lynx species and is definitely not an indoor cat. A male need to hunt about 50 deer and chamois every year to survive and its vital territory is about the size of Paris, 100km2 (40mi2). Reintroduced in Switzerland and naturally returned in France, the country is now counting 150 individuals roaming the Jura Mountain range, east of France.
