Rufus is a three-year-old male lynx. He was born in the spring of 2016, in the central part of the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy Mountains. In December 2017 Rufus moved to Slovak Javorníky, where he now lives permanently. In March 2019, Rufus was trapped (into a cage) and was fitted with a satellite telemetry collar.
Despite of rainy Saturday we decided not to postpone our National Wolf Week in the Olomouc Zoo, so it took place in originally announced weekend, from 5th to 6th October 2019. As a result of this decision, the attendance at our booth on Saturday was quite low. Nevertheless, we've collected a total of 808 CZK for Hudson Bay wolves in the Olomouc Zoo, which is not so bad considering the weather. Many thanks to all donors on behalf of wolves and the Olomouc Zoo.
