Look: Lynx captured after days on the loose in Long Island

July 29 (UPI) — A Lynx on the loose in New York’s Long Island region has been captured after three days on the loose.

The Strong Island Animal Rescue League, which earlier warned residents to look for the exotic cat, said the Suffolk County Police Department captured the lynx about 3: 30 a.m. Friday in Islip.

Strong Island Animal Rescue League personnel were summoned to the scene and transported the cat, thought to be an escaped exotic pet, to Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown.

“We were super happy, we have been tracking him for some time,” Frankie Floridia, president of Strong Island Animal Rescue, told the Long Island Press. “It’s just an incredible thing. It is a happy ending.”

An Islip homeowner snapped photos of the lynx on Tuesday once the cat was found sitting on the resident’s porch. The feline was gone by enough time rescuers arrived.

“She’s been through a lot within the last week, and we wish everyone to learn that we won’t have her noticeable to the general public,” Sweetbriar Nature Center said in a Facebook post. “You want to ensure she actually is happy, healthy, rather than stressed.”
