Animal hijinks aplenty in the region

Local animals popped up in weird places this week.

Local animals popped up in weird places this week: a bull elk on a Castlegar roof and a family of lynx on Rino’s Run at Red Mountain.

Rob Stroud shot the video of a family of four lynx on Rino’s Run.

“I came around the corner and one of them, the bigger one, was sitting right in the middle of the trail and I almost ran into her,” he said. “And then I just skied past and stopped with my buddy and he just said ‘Film that,’ so I took a little video.”

Stroud is from Fruitvale and skis at Red three to four times year. He said he’s never seen lynx on the mountain before.

He also said he’s surprised by how many people have watched his video.

“It was pretty flukey, but even talking to a lot of locals who ski there every day, they say they’ve never seen one,” he said.
