    The average size for a male Lynx in Norway and Sweden is 23 kilo and one above 26 kilo is rare.
    An average female is 17 kilo.
    I have seen one that was 30 kilo and it was shot by the neighbor of my grandparents when they lived.
    I thought his was a monster, but this one shot in Sweden is HUGE!:eek:

    Most likely reindeers. This is in the northern part of Sweden, with herds of domesticated reindeers. I would think the sami reindeerherders are happy to get rid of this one...
