A lynx received a stern lecture from a farmer in northern BC over the weekend.

In a wild video posted to Facebook, Chris Paulson shows himself holding the creature by the scruff of its neck after it was caught attacking and killing some of his chickens on his Burns Lake-area property.

“Let’s go see the damage you did, buddy,” he says in an impressively calm.

“How many chickens did you get? You got some of our new ones, not good is it? No. I know it’s not good. First the owl then you, eh!”

Good little bad Cat!! And here I thought smoke was bad!

As one might expect, the video has drawn quite the response online with more than 300 reactions, 200 comments and 700 shares in less than a day. 

Canadian lynx are said to weigh, on average, under 25 pounds.

However, Paulson comments that the cat appeared skinny before letting it go.
