Mammals in Doñana

Three lynxes killed in Doñana

March 10th, 2010

Three Iberian lynx have been run over in the last month in Doñana, one of the worst figures for years. The latest animal was a male found dead on the road connecting Matalascañas with El Rocíos. He is thought to have been dispersing in search of new territories. Almost three lynxes a year (26 in total) have been killed since 2000…And three in a single month is an utter disater. Clearly the traffic signs aren’t sufficient.  Crónica Verde

This video of a mongoose (meloncillo) interacting with a wild boar in Doñaña is interesting. Found on Naturablog.
