SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury Zoo has announced the acquisition of a mother-daughter pair of Canadian lynx from the Pittsburgh Zoo.

We’re told the mom, Chayne, and her daughter Helga were recommended to go to the zoo through the lynx Species Survival Program with the possibility of breeding in the future. The pair are living in the exhibit previously occupied by the jaguar.

Zoo visitors will be able to view mom and daughter at a distance due to COVID-19 precautions. Officials say cats, deer, river otter, and primates are susceptible to the virus and special precautions have been made to distance visitors from the exhibit.
