NEWSLINK: Wild lynx plan not possible under current law

Sheep farmers are growing increasingly concerned about plans to reintroduce lynx into the countryside.

Conservationists pushing for a five-year trial reintroduction of Eurasian lynx say their preferred sites would be Kielder Forest in Northumberland and the Borders area in Scotland.
