New Brunswick Photographer Captures Stunning Photo Of Lynx

A New Brunswick biologist and photographer recently captured the wildlife shot of a lifetime.

Arielle DeMerchant set up a trail camera near Scotch Lake over the winter near a deer carcass.

She first spotted a lynx nosing around a pile of bait she had set out (beaver remains that were given to her by a trapper) back in November 2016.

She finally struck gold with a photo of the elusive feline in April of this year.
