In this insane video filmed near Fort Saint John, British Columbia, we get to see just how powerful a lynx can be, even against an animal that weighs four times more than it does.
For starters, a full grown Canada Lynx tops out around 30 pounds, with most of them weighing somewhere around 20-25. A mule deer doe can get up near 180 pounds but most of them clock in somewhere around 150 pounds. Of course these are just averages and estimates, but either way, you can see the stark contrast in size.
Did that stop this lynx? Nope.
The doe is able to land a kick during the initial attack, but as soon as that lynx latched on to the head and the neck, it’s all over. According to Hinterland Outdoors, the lynx killed the muley and was spotted days later enjoying the spoils of its victory.
