POND COVE, N.L. – A crea­ture rarely seen on the Great North­ern Penin­sula was cap­tured on cam­era by a lucky ob­server who hap­pened to be in the right place at the right time.

Ver­non Buckle, a res­i­dent of Forteau in the Labrador Straits, spot­ted a Canada lynx at the in­ter­sec­tion of Pond Cove road and Route 430 on Sun­day morn­ing, May 27.

He says the an­i­mal crossed the road, went down into the ditch and then up on a bank be­fore head­ing back into the woods.

The large cat was calmly walk­ing, not run­ning.
