Lynx mother, kitten hanging around Lake Louise; park employee gets rare photos

LAKE LOUISE, Alta. – There’s a new cat in town and she’s got her kitten in tow.

A lynx mother and her baby have been hanging around the Alberta resort town of Lake Louise in Banff National Park for about a month now.

The usually shy wild cats have even been spotted on the Lake Louise ski hill.

Parks Canada has released some photos snapped by one of its employees who was helping to keep the lynx off the highway.

The pictures show an incredibly agile and flexible animal slinking its way through a wire fence.

Parks officials say lynx sighting have been extremely rare, but this year is considered to be a peak year for the animals.
