By observing the snapshots of the fauna, he discovers a welcome guest in the natural parks of Haute-Savoie
A very special guest made himself known during the month of April in Haute-Savoie.
It had been a while since we had seen this cat in the natural parks.
Return of the wild cat
It was the agents of the Parc des Bauges in Haute-Savoie who reported the presence of a very special cat.
Indeed, the forest cat (from the scientific name “felis silvestris”) was spotted in 7 communes of Haute-Savoie during the month of April.
The wildlife protection officers captured the presence of the wild cat thanks to cameras that observe the passage of wolves and lynx.
He has the right conditions to live
The wild cat had disappeared due to the animal traps.
Fortunately, since 1976, this cat is now a protected species.
The return of the forest cat to Haute-Savoie is encouraging for the future, because it means that the species is finding in nature what it needs to live. This is great news!
