still crossing my fingers the lynx will move on and not bother with the wire, but if I see it again i'll have to beef up security
You can hope in one hand (with fingers crossed)....you know how the rest goes.

At least put up some welded wire fencing over that chicken wire,
top too they can jump high,
then start saving for the hot wire.

I find both of these pictures helpful.

The first tells you about different predator protection. The second is the best option to stop jumping and climbing.
A roof overhead either solid or fence will also stop attacks from above. But it needs to be sturdy enough to hold the weight of a larger animal if it were to climb or jump on top of it.
