According to the Denver Post, officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife said that the Lynx appeared to be malnourished and was likely making its public appearances out of stress. In a statement, Scott Wait of CPW recounted the lynx sightings saying, “I saw three more videos of the same animal behaving the same way in the same area I figured that something was wrong with the cat.”A necropsy (*the wildlife version of an autopsy) will be carried out in the next few days to determine what actually killed the cat.
