No need to go to Africa for seeing hypocritical "green" behavior. In Romania we are forced to fully protect bears, wolves and lynxes only because we had bad representatives when we negotiated EU membership. 

The management of big predators was well organized, hunting ~400-500 bears each year and still maintaining a strong population. Now everything is out of controls, human attacks are often, crop and cattle damages are high (and rarely paid!) and revenge killing is a common thing. 

Bunch of "conservationists" from Germany, France or Holland are lecturing us on how to coexists! It is simply outraging

Go on then who won

They both were dead game, fought to the death. 

I can't post a link for some reason but it's on Google if you search, just an old legend that supposedly happened during the times of the crusades.

Do you think reintroducing them to scotland would be beneficial?

You really would not notice they are that shy mate

Most facebook 'conservationists' of the West would have some dirt poor African f***ing lynched for poisoning a herd of elephants that are threatening his livelihood but it's alright for us here to stand on the prosperous shoulders of men that did exactly the same....

It's a nuanced and complex topic but if we value nature we have to start looking at the bigger picture.

Man playing god, wiping things out that never suited us now trying to put it back when there’s very little room for it, nature always has and always will thrive on neglect and it will take a big disaster to remove most of us before things can ever begin to heal and replace the balance, think Chernobyl has shown us what can be achieved when you take the human out of the equation 👍

The tusks are razor sharp one of my dogs ended up with over 60 stitches to face & neck when she went for throat hold. Atb

The main problem your dog has is he is steaming into an already terrified animal that is fully aware it is fighting for its life most cat attacks are over before they start due to the element of surprise, Jaguars take camon  and crocs with ease but if the animal new it was about to be attacked the jaguar would loose its life, this young one is just learning his trade but you can see that all important first bite 👍👍

Would they have a big impact on roe,rabbit and fox numbers?

Nowhere near as much as cars do, obviously I doubt any farmers would welcome them mind.

Fox,s seem to reduce in areas with lynx but I think it’s eliminating competition rather than prey as they are often left uneaten, rabbits are pretty fecked anyways, and all the deer species need a predator to move them around to stop over grazing and to remove the weak and stupid

I think there is an insurance scheme that compensates farmers if the lynx release goes ahead which they will no doubt milk, don’t no lots about it but from the few conversations I’ve had the guy heading the project is apparently a bit of an abrasive character and has a habit of locking horns and pissing people off which is a problem when you are trying to win people over and gain trust 🥴
