NETHERLANDS SIGHTING: Lynx on the loose in Rijkswijk woods near the Hague, attacking people and animals - via Matt Salusbury
There is said to be a lynx on the loose in Rijkswijk Woods, near the city of The Hague (Den Haag, Netherlands)
One walker with her poodle Billy took up her poodle and ran to the nearest house when it "almost attacked her". No trace can be found, is the latest report. (Police carried out a search on Friday, and some locals searched again on Saturday.)
There are lynxes in the Ardennes, just over the border from (the other end of) Holland - in Limburg in Belgium, way down south, a long way from The Hague on the coast.
Local animal rescue centre Juliaantje, right by the Rijkswijk Woods, says they're not missing any animals.
This report was on Saturday 23 November.
