Photograph of a hunting lynx at Baroda, Gujarat from the Curzon Collection, taken by an unknown photographer during the 1890s. Hunting with trained wild cats was one of several royal sports traditionally favoured by Indian princes and continued during the 19th century. The lynx was chiefly used to hunt hare and birds and belonged to the Gaekwar Sayaji Rao III (ruled 1875-1939), 12th Maharaja of Baroda. In this view it is shown on a bullock-cart with its handlers.
