By LINDSEY ROSSER, Associated PressLynx, a majestic and often-criticized pet, is back in the spotlight.
But what does that mean for the people who depend on the animals?
The Associated World News Center for the Public Interest reports that lynx populations in North Carolina have plummeted by 70 percent in the last decade.
Lynx are in the midst of a conservation effort, but they still face some challenges, including a lack of care, lack of access to water and a lack or lack of resources for veterinary care.
Lynxes are protected by law in North Dakota, where the last one died in 2014.
The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCACDS) is the state agency that manages the lynx.
Its website lists many resources for owners and veterinarians, including education materials.
Lynxs are protected in North America by the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
In the U.S., lynx are protected under the Endangers Animals Act, which states that they must be kept on the same kind of land as native wildlife.
They can’t be transported, hunted or killed.
Lynks in North and South Carolina are protected on federal land.
In North Carolina, they are protected from hunters and anglers.
Lynx are also protected from the threat of a chemical spray known as Tritan X that can be used on them.
In 2018, North Carolina Governor Kay Hagan signed a bill that made it illegal to kill lynx in North or South Carolina.
The bill does not allow hunters to take lynx, but it does allow veterinarians to handle the animals.
Hagan also recently signed a law that allows North Carolina to import captive lynx into the U to use for breeding purposes.
The North Carolina legislature is considering a bill this year to end the state’s importation of captive lynxes.
Lynnx are considered a special species in North Africa.
Their native habitat is the Sahara desert in southern Africa.
Lynxes live in large groups and hunt in packs.
Lynxs are found in the Sahara in Africa and in other parts of Africa, but are also found in North African countries, including Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia.
Lynxi are also an endangered species in Europe.
They are also the only species of lynx native to North America, but lynx numbers have declined in recent years due to habitat destruction.
Lynxia in Europe are known for their long, black coats, and they are a favorite prey for hunters, including trappers, ranchers and others who want to catch wild animals.
