Schweinfurt: Germany’s thickest lynx died

news germany - lynx

Lynx “Rufus” in his enclosure (archive picture)

Its overweight has made “Rufus” famous: as the thickest lynx in Germany. Media reported about him worldwide. Now the aged animal has died in the game park in Schweinfurt, Bavaria. “Today he would have been 15 years old,” said manager Thomas Leier on Wednesday. Rufus said he had had health problems for months – due to his age and overweight he suffered from heart failure and shortness of breath.

On March 13, “Rufus” deteriorated so much that Leier let him sleep with a heavy heart. “Rufus” ‘s death only announced the city on Wednesday due to the corona pandemic.

“Rufus” came to Schweinfurt from a Swedish zoo in April 2006 and took care of a lot of offspring there. After castration and a fracture of the metatarsus, “Rufus” increased significantly. “He was fat,” said Lyre. At times, the big cat weighed more than 43 kilograms. For a lynx, 16 to 30 kilos are normal.

A photo that showed the fat lynx in an unfavorable Buddha pose went through the media in 2018. A year later an American fast food chain advertised his picture. “He has become so famous,” said Leier. The wildlife park in the meantime prescribed “Rufus” a slimming program with low-fat meat and more exercise, causing the kilos to tumble. He remained overweight until the end.

The politician had been mayor of Hockenheim (Baden-Württemberg) since 2014 and retired on schedule in August 2019. The SWR had also reported on the step taken by the judiciary.

Brunsbüttel: After 26 years without a “rag” – bikers are fed up with lying

In the end, a 50-year-old’s guilty conscience was too big. A police patrol had already checked the biker in March. He couldn’t show a driver’s license.

At the end of the film, the following sentence was added: “I am a person, I do not need an identity card”. State security in Berlin has taken over the investigation and is examining the suspect’s connections to the so-called Reich Citizens’ Scene.

The men are being investigated for willful physical harm and assault on police officers. They were initially released due to a lack of grounds for detention.

Cologne: customer pays ridiculous price for high-end grill – then an employee is taken aback

Because she is said to have sneaked into a high-quality grill in a hardware store for less than 40 euros, a woman had to answer before the Cologne district court on Monday. As the “Kölner Express” reported, the 40-year-old had paid the gas grill worth 899 euros at the supermarket’s self-service checkout and had left. “I was happy that the grill cost so little,” the woman said in court. She assumed a computer error. And she couldn’t do anything about that, she explained to the judge – apparently without being aware of any guilt. The prosecution saw it quite differently. According to their investigations, the customer had scanned the price tag of a printed canvas instead of the price tag for the grill at the cash register. A shop detective, who was invited as a witness, claimed to have discovered a cut-out label in the art prints department on the day of the crime. In addition, the suspect targeted the self-service checkout, although a checkout in the garden area of ​​the market would have been much closer. The prosecution could no longer prove that the original label was pasted over. So the trained nurse got away with a small circulation of 200 euros. The judge even wanted to stop the trial without this “memo”.
