Sad….a proud species is slowly fading away…
The Scottish wildcat, one of the last remnants of native cats in Britain, is a scary few months away from extinction. Scientists expect there are fewer than 35 purebreds out in the wild.
The wildcat, which is 50 percent larger than a house cat, holds the distinction as the only wild animal that can't be tamed, even if hand reared from birth!
The wildcat will follow the British wolf, British bear and British lynx as extinct animals native to the UK. The wildcat has lasted more than 500 years longer than Britain's other wildlife.
Very sad….another part of history begins to fade away do to human interference.
