Banshee with her new catnip toy. She maybe a lynx but the utter sweet smell of catnip brings out the kitten in her!

Banshee's story:

One of the first animals you will meet at the sanctuary will be Banshee -- our Eurasian Lynx. She is not a fan of the hot summer afternoons like us humans here in the beautiful Muskoka Lakes. She prefers the cool mornings and the sunsets but her true joy is the snow. Banshee came to us in 2002. After being used in movies, she was no longer needed and was ordered to be put down. A camera man on the set offered to take her in and he raised her for 2 years. But wild animals mature and Banshee started to become aggressive and unpredictable; showing her natural tendencies. He could not care for her any longer. Luckily he knew about Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary and asked if we could give her a home. Banshee has a large enclosure and loves to climb and hunt in the tall grasses. She likes to chase butterflies and birds that like her wildflowers but sometimes she likes to stalk the young children that visit her here at her sanctuary through the safety of her enclosure. If you do get a chance to see our beautiful Eurasian Lynx she may be sunning herself on her hammock high in her enclosure or lounging under the shady trees. Spring and fall visiting days are the best chance to meet Banshee.
