Poursuite intentée pour protéger le lynx menacé des pièges dans l'Idaho
Centre pour la diversité biologique, Projet des bassins hydrographiques de l'Ouest et Amis de Clearwater initiated a lawsuit today against the Governor “Butch” Otter of Idaho and other state officials to halt trapping that illegally kills one of the rarest cats in the United States, the Canada lynx.
Selon Idaho Fish and Game, the total population of Canada Lynx in the state is thought to be less than 100 and “may be especially susceptible to trapping, which has been a significant source of mortality.” Could the presence of this threatened kitty help safeguard other critters from this indiscriminate and barbaric hunting practice in Idaho?
