Was Welsh poet right about lynx legend? [Wales]:
The sixth century poem 'Pais Dinogad' in the Book of Aneirin boasts of the astonishing hunting abilities of Dinogad's father, and suggests he killed a 'llewyn' as well as a roebuck, a boar and a stag.

Experts originally believed the word referred to the lynx, but the notion was later dismissed as it was thought the feline had become extinct in the UK around 700 years before the poem was written.

But now carbon dating of lynx bones found in the Yorkshire Dales National Park has revealed the animal may well have still been around for more than half a millennium after it was thought to have disappeared. [...]

Read and listen to the poem here.

Sounds like Dino's dad killed the last one.
