Aroostook County photographer Paul Cyr was out last week between Washburn and Perham when he got to almost within arms length of the once elusive Canada lynx. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife shared some of his “fantastic” photos on its Facebook page along with a short narrative about how the animal has been increasing in population and expanding its range.
