World's Rarest Cat Species Boosted by Newfound Lynx

The world's most endangered cat species may be slightly less endangered than previously thought.

The newfound population appears to roam private estates in the Castile la Mancha Province of central Spain, according to the international conservation group WWF. The two other known populations occupy isolated portions of Andalusia in southern Spain.
