(BIG CATS/WILDLIFE/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) Max Lynx is a Canadian lynx, born in captivity at a zoo in May 2011. While he isn’t completely domesticated, he isn’t fully wild either. As one of the most elusive creatures in North America, Max also serves as an educational animal ambassador for a program called Wildlife Education in upstate New York. He educates the public on the threatened Canadian lynx in hopes that people will be driven to protect wildlife. Despite their dwindling numbers due to habitat loss and excessive hunting for their fur, it is still legal to trap these beautiful animals in Canada and Alaska. These majestic creatures deserve better. While most lynxes tend to avoid human contact, Max seems to love a little TLC from his caretaker Bernadette. Watch as he takes a moment to get some good scratchin’ before he sits down for his meal. — Global Animal
