There's more good news for Colorado's lynx restoration project. Biologists have found tracks from lynx kittens in southern Colorado's San Juan Mountains.
State Division of Wildlife spokesman Todd Malmsbury said, the tracks mean the animals were healthy enough to venture out into the snow. He also said there were 16 kittens last year, and the department found tracks from at least six that were tucked into high-elevation dens. There are 78 adult lynx and 16 kittens in all.
D.O.W. plans to release 33 more lynx in April, and more than 100 are expected to be released through 2007. The cats are being imported from Canada.
Project leader Rick Kahn says Colorado has a long way to go before it has a self-sustaining lynx population.
