Facts About BC Cougars and Lynx
The cougar is the largest of the three wild cats in Canada and is a formidable hunter. A large male cougar can weigh over 100 kg but is likely to be in the 60-80 kg range. Typically females are about 25% smaller than males. The cougar’s primary prey is deer. It will also feed on wild sheep, elk, rabbits, beaver, raccoons, grouse, and occasionally livestock. Cougars are most active at dusk and dawn. However, they will roam and hunt at any time of the day or night and in all seasons. The Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is a medium-sized North American cat that ranges across Alaska, Canada and many of the contiguous United States. It is characterized by its long, dense fur, triangular ears with black tufts at the tips, and broad, snowshoe-like paws. A specialist predator, the Canada lynx depends heavily on snowshoe hares for food. The Canada lynx hunts mainly around twilight, or at night, when snowshoe hares tend to be active.
