Alberta logger meets Canada lynx

That would brighten up the working day.

Being a lumberjack means spending a lot of time in the forest. A lot of these guys go to the mountains for weeks, in the middle of nowhere.

With that comes an opportunity to see some amazing things. For this reason, many people go to work in the forest so that they can be outdoors all the time.

When it comes to the Canada Lynx, it’s pretty rare to see one. They are like all wild cats and try to avoid being seen by almost anything. They are a threatened species in many areas, meaning their population has dwindled to a point of concern.

But lynxes are a cool animal. They are known for their distinctive ear tufts, short tail, and large, padded paws that act like snowshoes in winter. They are also known for their agility and stealth, allowing them to hunt prey in even the harshest parts of the wilderness.

They can best be compared to a bobcat, which is a close relative. The difference is that lynx are slightly larger and have a more distinctive appearance.

Some wildlife sightings don’t have to be spectacular to be amazing, this is one of them.

This man was in the woods of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada, using a skidder, a logging device used to pull trees onto the road.

The man stopped the machine on the road and noticed a lynx hopping on its tires. He started filming and the encounter just got better.

The logger sums it up in the video:

“I was stopped on the road with my skidder and I looked back and to my great surprise there was a Lynx next to my machine’s tyre.

I quickly climbed onto the roof and started filming. Then he jumped onto the hoop, looked at me, and then jumped back onto the bow of my skidder. Only a few meters away from me he sat there and watched me curiously.

After a few minutes he jumped back on my hoop and then jumped off the hoop back to the ground with a big jump and slowly walked back into the woods never to be seen again.

Seems pretty friendly, doesn’t it?
