Last year, a lynx den was discovered in Minnesota for the first time in more than 20 years. Lynx No. 13 growled a warning at the researchers who came to weigh and tag her four kittens. The mother lynx watched from 20 feet away, never coming closer...

DENVER (AP) -- Citing the success of a six-year, $2.5 million state program to transplant the endangered lynx from Canada, state officials want the federal government to lift land use restrictions designed to protect the cat's habitat. But they aren't optimistic anything will happen soon, despite the fact that scores of lynx are prowling across the western part of the state and have roamed into Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico.

DENVER (AP) -- The year ended happily for state biologists with news that six more lynx kittens have been born to transplanted lynx in Colorado, bringing the total of newborns to 36 this year and 52 since a reintroduction program began in 1999. The discoveries, confirmed this month, signal a positive trend for a program that got off to a rocky start. Four of the first five transplanted Canada lynx starved to death and opponents sued to stop release of the cats. At least 85 of 166...
