Woman attacked by lynx in Bellevue; boyfriend’s pet confiscated

 

The Associated Press

A lynx bit its owner’s girlfriend on the arm Friday, a Bellevue fire department spokesman said.

Spokesman Lt. Troy Donlin said animal control took the cat from the man. It’s illegal to own a lynx in King County.

Donlin says the woman’s injuries were not life threatening.

KING5 reports that the lynx is being quarantined at a Bothell veterinary office. The fate of the animal is uncertain. Authorities say it probably won’t be returned to its owner.
