Large cat seen in Nashville park is probably a lynx

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Neighbors of a Nashville park have reported sightings of a possible cougar in and around the park for more than a year.

But after a Nashville television station obtained video of the animal, Tennessee wildlife authorities identified it as a type of lynx, which poses no danger to humans.

Wildlife Coordinator Walter Cook says the animal spotted at Warner Park is either an African caracal or a Eurasian lynx.

Both animals are legal to own as pets without a special permit.
