Derek Duane, director of the MacKenzie Center, said staff at the vet hospital took X-rays of the lynx. They showed the lynx had suffered a spinal cord injury.
"We don't know if it was pre-existing or happened at the center," Duane said.
Duane said the center ordered a necropsy to better determine the history of the injury, but results won't be available for six weeks.
Staff at the vet hospital sent the cat to the University of Wisconsin Veterinary School for further analysis. Duane said staff at the school determined the lynx had suffered a spinal cord injury and could not guarantee a $5,000 surgery would fix the problem.
Duane said staff at MacKenzie are mystified about what happened. The lynx was fine on Wednesday, when it made its public debut, and Thursday and Friday.
"This was such terrible news," Duane said. "We're not over the shock of it, and we're trying to find answers."
Duane said he is meeting with staff Tuesday afternoon at the lynx pen. He is also calling the breeder in Minnesota, all in a quest to find answers.
The animal's death leaves the center with one lynx.
Duane said it's early to weigh options, but getting a second lynx, if available, is one of them.
"I would like another one in there," Duane said.
"They are making themselves right at home," says Director Derek Duane.
Duane says when their last lynx died, they knew they'd get another. But he didn't expect two cubs.
