Two Lynx Square Off And Make The Most Bizarre Noises Ever Recorded

This is a video you 100% need the sound on for. There’s no sense in even watching this clip unless you turn up the sound because otherwise, you’re just going to sit there and watch a clip of two Lynx staring each other down in Avery Lake, Ontario.

I’ve never seen a Lynx up close, and until now I’m not sure I’ve seen two square off on the side of a road, but I certainly didn’t expect them to sound like two screaming goats rolling their faces off at EDC Las Vegas. I really can’t think of any good way to describe these sounds other than ‘screaming goats on ecstasy’ which is also the name of my Bob Seger cover band.

This clip from Storyful has gone viral because millions of people, myself included, simply cannot wrap their mounds around these big cats that sound like angsty teenagers, or a stone Owen Wilson trying to act.

I’ll tell you who doesn’t like this clip: my dog. My dog was passed out upside down and snoring next to me while I was watching this video and woke up after hearing these noises, stared at me like I was insane, got up and walked out of the room.
