Else Margrethe Haugen was looking out of the window into her garden in Stangvik, north of Ålesund in Norway when she saw that a lynx had chosen to feast on a deer on her land.

"It came very close to the house. It was very exciting to see it," the 72-year-old told Norway's NRK channel. "But I didn't dare come any closer to it. I was simply a little too scared." 
Alv Ottar Folkestad from the local government wildlife agency said that he was not surprised that Lynx's had ventured into the town, as the animals are not as shy as many believe. 
"Lynx are usually solitary, but at night they are not afraid to come close to people and their houses," he said. "It is a myth that it is so shy, at least it isn't at night time".
