Beale Wildlife Park welcomes its first wild cat – a Lynx named Finn

Posted by CDoyle on 19/11/2020

A lynx is making Beale Wildlife Park his home.  Finn is a 15 month old Carpathian lynx (Lynx lynx carpathicus), a subspecies of the European lynx coming from the Carpathian basin (Romania, Slovakia and Hungry).

He is settling in very well and exploring his new enclosure and seems inquisitive and also very laid back.

His diet consists of a variety of natural meat and fish and he is beginning to get to know his animal keepers who are learning all about his personality.

Finn has the whole of the winter to get used to his new surroundings before the Park opens to visitors again on 8th February 2020.  His natural habitat is across northern Europe so the temperatures in West Berkshire winter will not faze him at all.

The Park is now closed. Please keep an eye on our website news section and via our social media sites for updates on the animals during lockdown and through the winter.
