Two adorable seven-week old Siberian lynx went missing overnight on Monday, July 3rd. They belonged to the Animal Gardens petting zoo in Delavan.

The two wild cats were last seen at around 5pm on Monday. Staff came in on Tursday morning and saw the top of their cage sliced open, trying to make it look like they escaped overnight.

Caretaker Danette Vincenti says she’s especially worried because the lynx are still so young and vulnerable. The cats just made the transition from drinking milk to eating meat, so their diet is very specific and must be followed.
