Some time ago, we were writing about adventures of a wolf called Lucky on his journey in search for… luck :) . You can see on the map how long was his trip: from Drawsko Forest to Bydgoszcz Forest, covering a straight-line distance of about 150 km. He crossed many obstacles: villages, roads, railways, open agricultural areas with no cover. He finally made it to Bydgoszcz Forest, where he found happiness, in his case… a she-wolf. Now, the wolves explore the area together. We will see if they will have pups :) .

The Bison – Acrobat

19 June 2015

Bison love to rub. Any objects with rough surface can serve as “bison brushes”. The free ranging bison also use rugged structures, like tree trunks. Rubbing against objects helps bison to shed the winter fur and get rid of ticks. To rub the whole body sometimes requires impressing gimnastic skills.

An unusual visit

30 May 2015

Wild Farm meets with increasing popularity among visitors. In recent days a likeable winged guest decided to come to us.  After a stroll on the parking lot and observation of the enclosure area from the strategic spot on the roof the stork flew away for a next journey. You are welcome to come again!

Spring in Wild Farm

22 May 2015

Although it is already late May, we cannot avoid the impression, that our bisons are still experiencing the spring “euphoria”. Today, they received a suprise in the form of birch branches put in a feeder and on the run. Knocking over, throwing, chewing and frolicking: folly mood could not end for a long time. Unfortunately, they were not eager to pose :)
