Featured Threatened Michigan Animal
The Canada Lynx is a threatened species that can be found in Michigan, specifically on Isle Royale and in the Upper Peninsula. These carnivores are not often spotted in Michigan but do show their faces once in awhile. They thrive in snowy areas and primarily hunt snowshoe hares, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. You can learn more about these remarkable animals at the USFWS website: www.fws.gov/mountain-prairie/es/canadaLynx.php
