Idaho faces lawsuit over inadvertent lynx trapping by recreational trappers

Five environmental groups filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Idaho today, charging that the state is violating the Endangered Species Act by allowing recreational trapping that inadvertently ensnares federally protected Canada lynx, the AP reports. In the last two years in Idaho, three lynx have been caught in traps intended for bobcats. One was killed after the trapper mistook it for a bobcat, and the two others were released. The groups want limits on Idaho trapping to protect the threatened big cat; click below for a full report from AP reporter Rachel LaCorte.
