Ten Canada lynx were recently captured in Canada and relocated to the Colville Confederated Tribes reservation as part of a project to move at least 50 of the cats to the reservation in the next five years to promote lynx recovery in the region.

The project began last year with the release of nine lynx on the reservation in the Kettle Range mountains.

Biologists with the Colville Confederated Tribes began trapping this year in early October and ended in early November, capturing and relocating the 10 adult lynx during that month, according to a news release from the Confederated Tribes.
