Photographer Mark Wing was instrumental in saving a caracal from a slow and painful death after his dogs alerted him to the presence of the angry, hissing wildcat, which had been caught in a snare in a forest in Prestbury on Saturday.

SPCA inspector Daniel Stewart used a pole with a noose attached to secure the caracal while he injected it with a sedative. He was then able to remove the snare.
