Doolittle too late: returning the lynx to Britain. #CurrenteCalamo The Fortnightly Review

Now the lynx may have originally been denizens of the British forest (like the bear and the wolf) but after an absence of 1,300 years I don’t think we can call them a native species any more. Things have moved on since then and there’s no point trying to turn back the clock. The landscape has changed dramatically and the human population increased. There’s nowhere in Britain now that can truthfully be called wild or wilderness, not even the barren far uplands of Scotland (and Scotland doesn’t matter because it will soon be ploughing its own independent furrow through the wastelands of national socialism).
