RAW VIDEO: Two Iberian Lynxes Released Into the Wilderness in Jaen, Spain

EFE (June 21, 2013) — Two Iberian lynxes, one male and one female, were freed in Jaen, Spain, on Friday in an attempt to strengthen the species' presence in the area and stop the decline of the iconic feline's population in Spain. The specimens, Jazz and Joaninha, were taken from a Portuguese breeding center Thursday afternoon to avoid high temperatures and possible dehydration. Both animals were selected due to the fact that they both have the optimal physical conditions needed to be inserted into the Spanish wilderness. Nine cubs, including Jazz and Joaninha, have been placed in the area since 2013, a sum which adds to the total lynx population in Spain of 300.
