Two displeased lynx have a screaming match with each other

If you've never heard a lynx wail, now is your chance. Their screams sound more like humans just being weird than actual animal sounds, but according to Global News, these lynx shouts are real.

The video was shot in Ontario, Canada.

While Edward Trist, his girlfriend Nicole Lewis and his daughter were heading down a logging road to go fishing near Avery Lake, Ont., east of Kenora, on Friday, they came across the rare sight about nine metres from where they stopped.

Trist said in an interview with Global News that they were heading off to go fishing.

“We started off down this road and there were two lynx on the road and as we approached, they didn’t move which was really odd,” he said. “We got out and started filming it … what we caught on camera is very, very rare to catch.”
