Lengthy, detailed "Cover Story" piece on the debate about whether Canada lynx should be added to the federal endangered species list. Despite evidence that lynx are breeding and raising families in Maine, the stateDepartment of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife still refuses to reverse its opposition to listing the species as endangered, which would attract federal and private research funds to answer questions about the Maine population. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USF&WS) was supposed to have decided the lynx listing by July 8, but due to professional disagreements, the ruling was postponed six months. Estimates of the number of lynx in Maine range from 20 to about 200, with perhaps 500 in all four or five states that the USF&WS says shelter the animals.
