Cariboo lynx photo captures BC SPCA Peoples Choice Award

Photo contest raised more than $16,800 to care for injured and orphaned wildlife

Michelle Obre of 150 Mile House captured the People’s Choice Award in this year’s Wildlife-In-Focus BC SPCA photo contest.

Obre’s winning photo was a striking image of a lynx taken last winter in the Cariboo.

“Came upon this beauty searching for lunch around the Mt. Timothy Ski Hill area,” Obre said in the caption.

The lynx photo raised $920 for the BC SPCA, while the contest overall raised more than $16,800 for wildlife in need at the BC SPCA’s Wild ARC, which cares for more than 2,800 injured and orphaned wild animals a year.
