Lynx Man


What separates man from animal? Hannu lives alone on his farm in the west of Finland. The environment is home to all kinds of wildlife, including the Eurasian lynx, a wildcat until recently almost extinct. When Hannu finds a dead lynx by the roadside, it is like meeting an old friend. And the lynx who lived in the area during Hannu’s childhood seems to have returned. Hannu sets up trail cameras all over his property, recording everything from moose to mice and gets to know the lynx’s habits and habitats.
