One chilly day, while working in a snowy part of the northwest, Dylan came face to face with a wild lynx. 

He was running a predator call when suddenly, a lynx darted toward his truck. The lynx paused briefly under the driver’s window before leaping right at it.

The lynx’s sudden move toward the truck certainly gave Dylan a jolt. In the video you’re about to watch, you’ll hear Dylan laughing, though it’s hard to tell if he’s truly amused. 

Considering lynxes can tip the scales at up to 45 pounds, it’s a good thing Dylan was inside his truck! These large wild cats can become aggressive and attack humans, particularly if they feel threatened. 

And since Dylan was in their territory, it’s no surprise the lynx made such a bold move.
