SOUTHERN COLORADO- JUNE 10: A biologist removes a kitten from its den in order to conduct a "work up" June 10, 2005 in Southern Colorado. The standard lynx "work up" includes checking the cat's health and placing a radio collar on the animal. In 1999 the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) began a lynx reintroduction program, trapping the animals in Canada and bringing them to Colorado. The goal is to re-establish the lynx population in the state, which has been nonexistent since the 1970s, to a viable level where the population that can sustain itself. The program has brought in 204 lynx between 1999 and 2005. There have been 71 known deaths, and 101 kittens born. The program is considered widely as a success, however the program has also instigated controversy protests from animal rights groups and developers.
